Sources in Élysée Palace state that French President Emmanuel Macron will meet “over 220 mayors affected” by the riots that erupted following the fatal shooting of a young boy, Nael, by a police officer. This development comes as the French Ministry of Interior announced the mobilization of 45,000 police officers for the third consecutive day. During the fifth night of unrest, 719 individuals were detained across the country.

President Macron is set to receive the President of the National Assembly, Yaël Braun-Pivet, and the President of the Senate, Gérard Larcher. Additionally, he will meet with over 220 mayors whose municipalities have been impacted by the riots. In terms of security measures, the French authorities have deployed 45,000 police officers for the third consecutive day to prepare for any further developments in various parts of the country following the shooting of young Nael by a police officer.

Protests and disturbances continue in France, particularly in major cities such as Paris, Marseille, and Lyon, in the wake of the tragic incident involving Nael, a minor. While there has been a relative calmness in recent nights, arrests continue to take place, with a total of 719 individuals apprehended thus far, according to the French Ministry of Interior.
