(Scroll down for video) A group of students rioted in France, after criticizing the police for arresting their classmate who admitted to throwing eggs at police officers.
The riot unfolded on Friday in Paris, after the students accused the police of using excessive force to arrest a 15-year-old boy.
The rioters attacked two police stations with rocks and tear gas.
The boy admitted to protesting and throwing eggs at police before being roughed up by officers. The boy said that on Thursday, the police officers charged at him and threw him down to the floor.
They then demanded that he get up before being punched in the chest. On Friday, his classmates reacted angrily, with some of them throwing rocks and tear gas at two police stations.
The youngsters also tried to break the reinforced windows of a station with wooden planks and scrawled death to the cops on the walls.
No arrests were made.
