Clashes broke out between police and protesters in Paris, Monday, ahead of French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen’s campaign rally in the French capital.
Police were captured physically accosting journalists during the demonstration, with demonstrators seen throwing rocks at law enforcement, who in turn fired tear gas.
Le Pen’s highest polling rival Emmanuel Macron was also holding a campaign rally in Paris ahead of the first round of voting in the French elections on April 23. Macron and Le Pen currently lead polls with 22 and 23 percent respectively. Left winger Jean-Luc Melenchon and Republican Francois Fillion follow behind with 19 and 21 percent.
