With Floyd’s death, French anger grows over police brutality

PARIS (AP) — France’s government is scrambling to address growing concerns about police violence and racism within the police force. Protests sparked by George Floyd’s death in the U.S. have stirred up anger in France and around the world. Many French protesters are also upset about police brutality closer to home. President Emmanuel Macron’s government has been largely silent about what’s happening in the U.S. and France. The country’s top security official is holding a news conference Monday to address concerns about violations by police. French activists say tensions in low-income neighborhoods with large minority populations grew worse amid virus confinement measures. More French protests are planned Tuesday.
