Bordeaux, central police station - Photo: Sebastien Ortola - S. ORTOLA / 20 MINUTES

On the sidelines of the demonstration of "yellow vests" on Saturday, a young man was hit during his arrest by the police at Saint-Jean train station in Bordeaux. The images of her arrest shocked internet users even if the departmental director of public security described it as "regulatory". He allegedly tried to blend in with the crowd of travelers so as not to be arrested by the police. They had identified him, thanks to aerial images, as the author of projectile jets in their direction.
