Cars were set alight and the Central Bank of France building was hit with a fire missile in Paris Saturday as tens of thousands of protesters took to city streets throughout France to block a security bill that seeks to prevent reporters from covering police brutality.
Violent demonstrators demanding a free press clashed with police who lobbed tear gas to disperse crowds, according to reports.
The draft legislation would make it a crime to publish photos or video of police officers with the intent of harming their “physical or psychological integrity.” The French government said the law is needed to protect police against increasingly violent attacks.
