BRUSSELS - Arab League leader Dyab Abou Jahjah is to be investigated on charges of child pornography after illicit images were allegedly found on his personal computer by Antwerp police.

Police had been carrying out an investigation on the financing of the Arab League when Jahjah's personal computer was seized and the downloaded images discovered.

A further investigation will now be launched against the Lebanese-born Belgian, who insists the latest allegation against him is nothing more than a political ploy in the run-up to the country's 18 May general elections.

A stronghold of the Belgian far-right, Antwerp was the scene of several pro-Palestinian protest last years, organised by Jahjah.

Accused of inciting riots in the town, he was briefly arrested for allegedly fuelling riots following the murder of a Muslim teacher by a white Belgian man.
