  • Violent protests in Paris suburbs reflect tensions under lockdown

    Apr 26, 2020
    PARIS — The riots began after a man on a motorcycle crashed into the open door of an unmarked police vehicle, a collision that landed him in the emergency room with a broken leg.

    In the midst of a global health crisis, the April 18 incident in the Paris suburb of Villeneuve-la-Garenne might have gained little attention — even while there was some debate between witnesses and police about whether the door had been opened on purpose.

    But, coming five weeks into a lockdown that has exacerbated inequalities, the incident brought simmering tensions to a boiling point in France’s poor and densely populated suburbs.
