Protesters in Paris attacked a police car with two officers inside with iron bars and set it alight in a dramatic unleashing of new anti-police violence, as officers across France took to the streets to denounce violence they say has been repeatedly directed at them.
An investigation for attempted homicide was filed, Paris police chief Michel Cadot said. One officer was hospitalized.
Protesters in Paris and elsewhere alleged the police have instigated the violence during a series of demonstrations against a controversial labor reform.
