Fresh Night of Riots in France Leads to Over 1300 Arrests

Violent protests continue to rock France for the fourth consecutive night, following the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old boy named Nahel by a police officer.

The unrest, which began in the Paris suburb of Nanterre, has spread nationwide, resulting in widespread damages and over 1,300 arrests.

The violence has put pressure on President Emmanuel Macron, who has called for calm and blamed social media for fueling the unrest.

France’s national football team, including star player Kylian Mbappe, has also called for an end to the violence and urged peaceful dialogue and reconstruction.

The protests highlight long-standing tensions between police and young people in disadvantaged neighborhoods who face poverty, unemployment, and racial discrimination.

The situation remains volatile, with fires, looting, and clashes with police reported in various cities across the country.

The British Foreign Office has issued a warning to British tourists, advising them to be aware of the unrest and potential disruptions in France.
