French riot police clash with youths protesting against second round candidates

Smoke grenades could be seen being thrown at a demonstration in Paris where hundreds of protesters are marching against second round candidates for the 2017 French presidential election Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron. French media reported that police deployed tear gas against the protesters.

Riot police have been deployed at the scene of the rally since the demonstration was not authorized by the city prefecture.

“Neither Macron, nor Le Pen,” the protesters have been heard shouting.

Students from at least 20 Paris lycees took part in the demonstration, AFP reported, citing educational officials.

Protesters were throwing bottles and stones against police, BFMTV reported, adding that police responded with tear gas.

“Neither fatherland, nor the boss, neither LePen nor Macron,” banners held by demonstrators said.
