The highest court in France has ruled that the viewing of jihadist websites isn't illegal.
The French constitutional court ruled a law banning people from the regular consultation of websites which encourage acts of terrorism to be unconstitutional.
The law was brought in several months after the terror attacks in Paris which left 130 people dead and resulted in an ongoing state of emergency.
It imposed a two-year prison sentence for anyone who regularly consulted jihadist websites, but judges have now ruled this is a disruption to freedom of communication.
The ruling comes a few hours after a high-profile series of arrests in Montpellier, where four people were arrested on suspicion on planning a 'mother of Satan' bomb attack in Paris.
