Riots have broken out in Paris after a teenage driver was shot dead by police in the Nanterre suburb.

The incident was videotaped on Tuesday after the youth – who has been named as Naël M – allegedly flouted traffic rules.

Anger broke out in the French capital, with violent demonstrations leading to 31 arrests so far.

Around 1,200 police officers and gendarmes were deployed last night to keep the violence under control, and 24 were injured in the clashes.

Naël’s distraught mother, who asked not to be named, said: “I lost a 17-year-old, I was alone with him and they took my baby away from me.”

“He was just a kid, he needed his mother.”

The police officer who killed the boy was arrested during the murder investigation.
