France Riots: Macron Wants ‘Sound Answers’ After Unrest
Emmanuel Macron said his government’s task would be to “draw lessons from what happened.” Rioting last month fueled by the killing of a French teenager of Arab descent resulted in looting and violent clashes with police.
French President Emmanuel Macron Friday called upon ministers to draw lessons from riots that shook the nation earlier this month.
There was a “need for authority and respect,” Macron told ministers during a cabinet meeting.
“We must draw lessons from what happened, and provide sound answers,” he said. Macron was speaking after shuffling cabinet ministers on Thursday.
