The six were detained on Tuesday after being “identified in the course of an investigation over incitement to hatred online”, a source in the state prosecution service, who asked not to be named, told AFP.

They were released the following day, the source said, adding that investigators had also examined material seized during searches.

Nakamura, 29, was at the centre of a political storm after President Emmanuel Macron suggested the singer of “Djadja” could perform at the July 26 Olympic event.

Far-right politicians and conservatives rounded on her, accusing her of “vulgarity” and not respecting the French language.

Police opened a probe after the anti-racism group LICRA in March flagged numerous racist online messages targeting Nakamura.
