Police and Firefighters in France were caught clashing in a brutal mass street brawl the video of which has since gone viral. As The Daily Mail reports:
Fighting broke out between riot police and firefighters who were trying to break down security screens during anti-government protests in Paris today.
Videos of the astonishing violence were posted online during demonstrations close to the centre of the capital.
They clearly show baton-wielding CRS (Republican Security Companies) officers involved in bitter fighting with firefighters, who were demanding better pay and conditions.
‘The firefighters were very militant, and at one stage tried to push down police barriers,’ said an eyewitness.
The ongoing protests have mostly been in opposition to the policies of President Macron.
