PARIS — A state-funded museum in Paris is causing outrage among France's Jewish community for a photo exhibit that calls Palestinian suicide bombers "martyrs."

The exhibit of work by Palestinian photographer Ahlam Shibli, which started last week at the Jeu de Paume, features dozens of photographs with captions that glorify dead members of Palestinian groups.

It includes suicide bombers from the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, which is listed as a terrorist organization by the European Union and the United States.

The captions, written by Shibli, says that the suicide bombers are martyrs since they lost their lives "as a result of the Israeli occupation."

France's leading Jewish group, CRIF, wrote a letter last week to France's culture minister calling the exhibit "unacceptable."

A protest is planned at the museum this Sunday.
