Protests in Paris are quickly turning to dangerous riots as tensions rise. An amateur video retweeted by Marion Le Pen shows a large group of rioters chanting "Allahu Akbar", Arabic for "Allah is the greatest", while setting a car aflame. Purple haze covers the air as smoke fogs with street lamps, and protestors are heard viciously chanting. The footage captures an inside look at the mayhem ensuing in Paris, while car horns blare as they attempt to escape the chaotic anarchy, and waves of fire cover the land. Watch the raw footage below:
The protests grew dangerous and violent after a video allegedly surfaced showing a Paris police officer "sodomizing" a 22-year old black man named "Theo" with a truncheon, a black stick carried by unarmed police officers in Europe. The 22-year old was rushed to the hospital and is being treated for a "severe wound" and is in a "traumatized" state. The police have now claimed the sodomizing of the teen was an "accident", reports Alijazeera. However, this comment has only raised tensions between police and protesters, as dozens have now gathered outside the hospital that holds Theo, protesting there as well.
The AFP news agency cited a police source as saying that having taken into account CCTV recordings and witness accounts, "there are insufficient elements to show that this was a rape". Saying the video shows the officer "applying a truncheon blow horizontally across the buttocks with a truncheon" and Theo's trousers "slipped down on their own", the source said.
Political Outsource continues to report live at the unfolding madness ensuing in Paris, where protests are quickly turning into violent riots. Take a look at the images below highlighting some of the chaos taking place:
