Molotov Cocktails, Tear Gas in Paris Police Brutality Protest
Local Editor

French police and protesters clashed at a demonstration against police brutality, the latest in dozens of similar rallies inspired by the alleged assault of a young black man with a baton.

Molotov Cocktails, Tear Gas in Paris Police Brutality Protest

Thousands of protesters turned up for the rally which began at the Place de la Nation on Sunday afternoon, in support of "justice and dignity" following the so-called ‘Theo Case' that's already caused uproar in the suburbs of Paris.

A reported 7,000 to 7,500 people marched from Place de la Nation to Place de la Republique, carrying banners that called for "Justice and Dignity and Stopping Police Impunity" in what was a still a peaceful protest.

Clashes broke out between some protesters and police at around 5 pm local time.

At the end of the protest, about 1,000 hooded demonstrators were filmed throwing Molotov cocktails and flares at police, who responded with tear gas.

Two police officers were taken to hospital with minor injuries while three people were arrested and windows of five banking institutions were damaged, reports AFP.
