July 19, 2014 at 04:13 GMT +00:00 · Published

Violent clashes between riot police and pro-Palestinian protesters erupted during a banned anti-Israel rally in Paris on Saturday, with some of the demonstrators smashing bus stop windows and tearing apart pavements.

Police sprayed tear gas at the protesters, whilst the protesters throw objects at the officers and set up their own barricades on the streets of the French capital.

The French government had previously expressed concern for any pro-Palestinian rallies taking place in Paris, following last Sunday's march which also ended in clashes.
