More than 600 people were arrested in France and at least 200 police officers were injured. While the government tries to restore order on the third night of the riots, caused by the death of a 17 -year -old teenager, in the hands of the police. 

The protests began in Antere, the suburb of the northwestern part of the country, where a police officer shot the young man, who was only identified by his name in Aéle, during a traffic control. 

A victim's family said that their family has Argentine roots. The riots have spread to several French localities. The authorities mobilized around 40 ,000 people to focus on the protests. 

The police arrested 667 people, 307 of them in the region of Paris. About 200 people were injured, said a spokesman for the National Police. The number of injured civilians did not report immediately. 

The police accused of shooting the teenager on Tuesday faced a preliminary charge of voluntary homicide, after the Pascale -Prashe fiscal report pointed out that his initial investigation 

led him to the conclusion that the conditions for the legal use of the weapon were not fulfilled. The incident, which was captured in video, was announced to the country and agitated the old tensions between the police and the young people 

who live in complex social housing and low -class neighbors. Activists against racism renewed their complaints about the behavior of the police. Rosalba Rees, Associated Press.
