Euro fans clash with police under Eiffel Tower

11 Jul

SAINT-DENIS, France — Paris police report there have been clashes with young troublemakers underneath the Eiffel Tower and that police have used tear gas to disperse them.

The clashes happened about 100 metres from a huge fan zone and giant screen displaying the final of the European Championship between France and Portugal.

There only appeared to be a few dozen troublemakers, who seemed to want to break into the fan zone, which contains about 80,000 people watching the game.

Some garbage was set alight in the street under the massive tower, which dominates the Paris landscape.
