A group of several hundred young people did gather in Bobigny, northwest of the city. A strong police presence was visible, and tear gas was used to disperse the crowds. Video here shows evidence of vandalism during the confrontations. Thirteen arrests were made, France 3 said.

Four police officers have been charged in relation to the alleged assault of a 21-year-old named as Theo L, who was released from hospital on February 16.
