French Protest Against Police Violence

Thirteen people have been arrested and two police officers were slightly injured following a protest in Paris against police violence. Rallies have taken place around France following the alleged rape and beating of a 22-year-old man—named Theo—while being arrested in the Parisian suburb of Aulnay-sous-Bois, Euronews reported. Over 200 people have been detained during days of demonstrations. Far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen called for the protests to be banned. However, other politicians and famous faces took part. Theo was in hospital for two weeks following the alleged incident. He claims to have been abused with a police baton after being stopped for an identity check. One policeman has been placed under formal investigation for the suspected rape and three others for violent conduct.
