MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, a 24-year-old man died during transportation to a police station in Val d'Oise.
Local residents gathered in front of the police station on Thursday to voice their outrage at the man's death. They lit several cars and dumpsters in the vicinity of the police station on fire. They also were hurling Molotov cocktails at police, local municipality and a nursery school.
"180 police officers and gendarmes were mobilized to tackle 200 violent protesters… Nine people were detained for… throwing Molotov cocktails and attempt to set a municipal administration of Beaumont on fire," Jean-Simon Merandat was quoted as saying by the France Info radio station.
