At least 29 people were detained, and nine others were injured in the clashes in Paris after the first round of the presidential elections in France.

Police clashed with anti-fascists protesters in Paris Sunday shortly after early projections from France’s presidential elections showed far-right leader Marine Le Pen making it into the second round scheduled for May 7.

Several hundred young people rallied in Bastille Square — the historic site where the French Revolution began in 1789 — after projections suggested that the runoff election would be between Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron, a former investment banker and economy minister of socialist President Francois Hollande.

A protest leader called on the public through a loudspeaker to rally “against Marine and Macron.”
