Sixteen police officers were injured in violent clashes with young people in the city of Amiens in northern France overnight, authorities said Tuesday.
Three public buildings were also badly damaged during several hours of disorder, CNN affiliate BFM-TV reported.
Amiens Mayor Gilles Demailly told BFM that the damage amounted to millions of euros.
The scene in the wake of the disorder was one of desolation, he said.
Images from the neighborhood showed burned-out cars and the charred wreckage of a kindergarten and a sports center.
Clashes were reported in the same area Sunday night, BFM reported. The latest violence, involving about 100 young people, broke out late Monday evening and carried into the early hours of Tuesday.FULL STORY
