More protests in France

Major cities in France experienced a third night of rioting as President Emmanuel Macron fought to contain growing public anger triggered by the police killing of a 17-year-old teenager of Algerian and Moroccan descent during a traffic stop. Al Jazeera quotes police as saying that faced new incidents in the cities of Marseille, Lyon, Pau, Toulouse and Lille including fires and protesters hurling fireworks. There were also clashes reported between young people and police officers in the Belgian capital Brussels, where about 10 people were arrested on Thursday evening, and some of the city’s public transport operations were discontinued.
