June 10, 2004, of inciting racial hatred for portraying Muslims
in a negative light in a book. The Paris court said the former film
star compared them to "invaders, cruel and barbaric." Bardot and
her publishing house, Editions du Rocher, were fined $6,050 each,
to be paid to two anti-racism groups that took them to court. (AP Photo/Franck Prevel, File)
