Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo has said she intends to sue Fox News after the channel claimed there were areas in the city that are "no go" zones for non-Muslims, according to CNN.

In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Ms Hidalgo said reporting from Fox News in the aftermath of a series of terror attacks, was insulting.

She said: "When we're insulted, and when we've had an image, then I think we'll have to sue, I think we'll have to go to court, in order to have these words removed.

"The image of Paris has been prejudiced, and the honor of Paris has been prejudiced."
