PARIS, July 16 (UPI) -- France's far-right political party says it will sue Madonna for superimposing a swastika on a video image of Marine Le Pen shown during the pop star's show.

Radio France Internationale reported the Front National warned the U.S. singer after she used the image during her May 31 Tel Aviv concert that legal action would be taken if she repeated the gesture when she performed in Paris.

However, Madonna ignored the party's caution and replayed the video clip of Le Pen, the party's president, during her Saturday show in the French city and the party said it now plans to take her to court.

Madonna is scheduled to return to France for a concert in Nice Aug. 21.
