A peaceful protest by French medical workers escalated into riots and clashes with police in Paris.
About 20 law enforcement officers are injured. About 32 people have been detained. In all, more than 18,000 health workers have taken to the streets across France. Medical professionals are dissatisfied with the new health care reform and complain about the huge lack of resources and staff. The police used force and tear gas.
The Prefecture of the Parisian Police reported in its official Twitter account that the detainees had nothing to do with the medics.
