Over 100,000 protests controversial police law in France amid violence-Read

As brutality by law enforcement increases, up to a half-million demonstrators demand the withdrawal of new security measure while a Syrian journalist gets injured covering the events.

Tens of thousands of critics of a proposed security law that would restrict the filming of police officers protested across France on Monday, and officers in Paris who were advised to behave responsibly during the demonstrations repeatedly fired tear gas to disperse rowdy protesters who set fire to France’s central bank and threw paving stones.

Protests took place in cities across France including Paris, Strasbourg, Marseille and Lyon.

Isolated riots broke out in Paris, where 46,000 people marched according to the ministry.
