Reporter attacked, 2 cars burned out as anti-police protests rage on in Paris suburbs

The Paris suburb of Argenteuil saw violent scenes and arrests as dozens of people took to streets to protest police brutality, as the “accidental” sexual assault of a 22-year-old man by a police officer continued to rile up French youth.

Some 50 young people gathered at Maurice Utrillo avenue in the center of Argenteuil on Sunday evening, Le Parisien reported.

The gathering was reportedly called via Facebook, with the alleged intention to copycat the November 2005 riots. Dubbed “the French Intifada,” the mass violent riots at the time were triggered by the death of two teenagers with immigrant background, who got electrocuted while hiding from police allegedly chasing them for interrogation in an eastern Paris suburb.

Witnesses reported that the young people in Argenteuil were armed with iron bars and started lighting fires. Thick smoke soon covered the scene.

Several police units with as many as 90 officers in total were promptly dispatched at around 5pm local time.

    PARIS ERUPTS IN VIOLENCE: Many streets are NO-GO ZONES as five suburbs in flames


    POLICE in Paris are struggling to cope with the fall out from a plague of riots which have kicked off in the city’s northern suburbs.


    Five large areas have been reduced to no go areas for the past five nights as masked men cause mayhem on the streets.

    Now there are fears the fall out from allegations of police brutality could spread all over the country as unrest in the city grows.

    Residents have been on lockdown as armed police tried to tackle the rioters who have caused millions of pounds of damage.

    PARIS RIOTS MAPPED: 20 no-go zones located as violence spreads ACROSS FRANCE


    THE Paris riots are now spreading across France as vigilantes stage running battles with police which have turned parts of the country into no go zones.

    And law enforcement say two weeks of civil unrest has now led to frenzied clashes in 20 districts with millions of pounds worth of damage in Paris alone.

    Worryingly about 60 per cent of those involved in the street fights are children, police say.

    As well as serious crime in at least 16 northern Paris suburbs, the confrontations have spread to Nantes in Brittany, Lille - the capital of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, and Rouen in Normandy where catholic priest Father Jacques Hamel was murdered while he was saying mass the altar last summer.

    PARIS RIOTS: Balaclava-clad students set fire to bins in latest 'Justice for Théo' protest

    THOUSANDS of French pupils blocked the entrance to Parisian schools this morning after a left-wing group called for teenagers to protest against police brutality and "demand justice for Théo".

    Pupils carried bins and barriers to block the entrance to more than a dozen schools - including the Dorian, Arago, Voltaire, Charlemagne, Sophie Germain, Chaptal and Naples high schools, which are all located in central Paris.

    One school - the Lycée Jules Ferry - closed its doors for the day as a "security precaution" after hearing that some of the protests had descended into violence before 9am local time.

    Violent clashes between police and students have also been reported outside several Paris schools.
