    FOX News reacted to the recent statements of the Paris Mayor to sue the network, calling them misplaced.

    WASHINGTON, January 22 (Sputnik) — FOX News responded to threats made by the Mayor of Paris to sue the network over reports that the city had non-Muslim “no-go zones" by characterizing her comments as inappropriate, according to a statement, issued by FOX News Executive Vice President, Michael Clemente, on Wednesday.

    “We empathize with the citizens of France, as they go through a healing process and return to everyday life. However, we find the Mayor’s comments regarding a lawsuit misplaced,” Clemente said.

    On Tuesday, the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, announced in the interview to CNN that the city intends to sue FOX News for running reports claiming that parts of the city are “no-go zones” for non-Muslims.

    FOX has issued four apologies, including one from host Julie Banderas who said that FOX had made “regrettable errors” regarding Europe’s Muslim community and conceded that there was no credible information to support assertions of “no-go zones.”

    The FOX segments come on the heels of three terrorist attacks, involving Islamic radicals that killed 17 people in the Paris area within the past two weeks. On January 7, terrorists attacked the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper office, killing 12, while the following day a French female police officer was killed. On Friday, gunman killed four hostages in a kosher supermarket.
