"...new incidents in the cities of Marseille, Lyon, Pau, Toulouse and Lille..."
At least 667 people, mostly young people between 14 and 18 years old, were arrested in the third consecutive night of unrest in France, with scenes of chaos and looting in several cities following the death of a 17-year-old teenager Nahel at the hands of police on Tuesday.
Violence erupted on Tuesday on the outskirts of Paris and spread to other parts of France after the death of 17-year-old Nahel, shot at point-blank range by an officer at a roadblock that was recorded on video.
During a march organized by Nahel's mother, who carried a banner with the slogan "Police Kills," thousands of people chanted phrases such as "Killer Police" and demanded the resignation of Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin.
