France: Violent video of arrest of nurse sparks outrage

Outrage erupts across France over the way police treated a protester who is accused of throwing objects at officers.

The violent arrest of a nurse at a protest in Paris is causing outrage across France.

Riot police were filmed removing the woman from a crowd of demonstrating health workers who were demanding better pay for their work during the coronavirus pandemic.

At one point, officers dragged the 50-year-old woman by her hair.

But police say she was arrested for throwing objects.
