Paris climate march halted amid clashes between activists and police

Paris climate march halted amid clashes between activists and police

A peaceful climate march in Paris has been halted after it was infiltrated by other protest groups.

Groups of anarchist demonstrators joined in, breaking windows and setting fire to street barricades.

Families abandoned the march as violent clashes prompted French police, who have previously been accused of excessive violence, to fire tear gas and make over 100 arrests.

A huge security operation involved 7,000 police officers.

Much of the violence and vandalism was attributed to the so-called black bloc anarchist group, who wore black scarves, sunglasses and hoods to cover their faces.
