They threw smoke bombs and other objects at officers along the famed Champs-Elysees and started pounding on the windows of a police van, prompting riot police to retreat. Thousands of demonstrators also gathered in Lyon, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Marseille, and Montpelier.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe visited the Champs-Elysees to show his support for riot police and firefighters. He condemned the violence, vowing to “severely punish” the radicals.
