France: Demonstrators start fires during face-off with police in second night of protests

Thousands of protesters demonstrating in support of refugees started fires, lit flares, and chanted slogans for the second straight night at the iconic Place de la Republique in Paris on Tuesday.

After a display of flares from demonstrators that had climbed atop the monument, the group began to march away from the square. The protesters came face-to-face with a large police presence leading to a face-off.

There were clashes during similar demonstrations on Monday, with Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin criticising the police's actions on Twitter, calling footage 'shocking.'

Several arrests were made during Monday's demonstration as scuffles broke out when police arrived to remove some tents set up at the Place de la Republique.

Some undocumented migrants installed tents on the square after the evacuation of the Saint-Denis camp by the French authorities last week.

On November 17, a police operation dislodged 2,500 refugees from the camp located in the north of Paris. Around 800 of them remain without a lodging solution, according to the pro-migrant activist group Utopia 56.
