Tensions flared and police detained several people at the first campaign rally of controversial French presidential candidate Eric Zemmour in Paris. The right-wing media pundit is hoping to win the vote against Emmanuel Macron but his first rally drew large counter-demonstrations of protesters accusing him of being xenophobic. The footage filmed on December 5 shows protesters gathering around the venue of the rally, shouting slogans against Zemmour and police arresting several of the activists.
