French riots: Amiens crowd jostles Manuel Valls

Help

France's interior minister has been jostled and jeered in the northern French city of Amiens where rioters clashed with police.

The trip by Manuel Valls came after two nights of trouble between police and protesters. Mr Vals said law and order must be restored.

Hundreds of riot police have been deployed to prevent any repeat of the violence which saw cars, a nursery school and a youth centre set on fire.
