Fireworks were aimed at police vehicles during protests against new coronavirus measures, which took place on Bastille Day, July 14, in Paris and other French cities.

Citing officials, French media reported as many as 18,000 people participated in the Bastille Day demonstrations, which were sparked by proposed legislation mandating vaccines for caregivers and an expansion of the health pass system.
