A metro station was also closed for a time before calm was restored later in the night.The alleged rape of the young man with a police baton has sparked eleven nights of rioting and more than 200 arrests.French President Francois Hollande earlier this week called for “justice” over the alleged rape.“Justice must be served,” Hollande said during a visit to Aubervilliers, located in the Seine-Saint-Denis region northeast of Paris where a 22-year-old youth worker, identified only as Theo, was assaulted on 2 February.But Hollande also condemned the ensuing riots. Protesters in Paris last night.

All four have been suspended from the force.On Tuesday, a separate investigation was launched into claims that one of the four officers beat up another black youth in Aulnay-sous-Bois on 26 January.The youth, also aged 22 who gave his name as Mohamed K, told L’Obs news weekly that he had been punched, kicked and beaten with a baton. Pictures published by the paper showed severe swelling and bruises to his face.
