Air France fined for refusing to fly activist to Israel

    Air France has been court ordered to pay a $12,800 (£8,400) fine for taking a pro-Palestinian activist off a plane for not being Jewish.

    Horia Ankour, 30, was escorted off a plane bound for Tel Aviv last April after an attendant asked whether she was Jewish and Ms Ankour replied that she was not. The French airline was found guilty of racial discrimination in a Parisian court on Thursday and was ordered to pay $3,000 in damages to Ms Ankour.

    The nursing student, was flying to Israel from Nice to take part in the Flytilla campaign in the Palestinian territories. There were 29 activists on the same flight as Ms Ankour, 21 of whom were detained at the airport.

    Air France said her name was on a list of undesirables provided by Israel.
