Paris police detain 100 at US embassy protest
Police in Paris detained around 100 people Saturday for taking part in an unauthorised, impromptu demonstration near the US embassy against a provocative anti-Islam film, police said.
Dozens of men, women and children who police said were possibly linked to Salafists, "demonstrated violently around the US embassy and clashed with police" on Saturday afternoon.
Two or three officers were slightly hurt in the protest. Most of those detained were men, said police.
