Bob Dylan has been charged with insulting behaviour and incitement to hatred in France after a Croat group filed a complaint about an interview he gave to Rolling Stone magazine.

The American singer was questioned and charged in mid-November after the group complained about the interview, in which he allegedly compared the relationship between Jews and Nazis to that of Serbs and Croats.

The Council of Croats in France had filed the complaint a year ago over an analogy he made in the 2012 interview while discussing race relations in the United States.

Last month, the 72-year-old music legend picked up France's Legion d'Honneur award, which can be granted to any foreigner seen as having served France's interests or upheld its values.
