Paris protest rages over police violence

By Associated Press

French police say over 20 protesters were detained during an eruption of violence against police in the Paris suburbs in which a police car was torched. The violence in the night of Monday to Tuesday is a show of outrage in support of a young black man who authorities allege was sodomized by a police officer's baton last week during a police operation that targeted drug traffickers.
