France accused of 'judicial apartheid' over officers' acquittal over deaths that sparked 2005 riots
Two French police officers were on Monday cleared of failing to help two teenagers whose deaths in a Paris suburb sparked three weeks of riots in the country's troubled "banlieues".
The verdict in Rennes, western France, came after both the public prosecutor and the defence called for them to be let off.
Some have expressed concerns an acquittal for the pair might spark violent protests like those seen recently in America.
