FRANCE-POLICE-INVESTIGATION-INTERNET-ARREST-VIOLENCE

Selim, 18, a young man who filmed with an iPhone a violent police arrest shows the video on a computer screen, on August 20, 2013, in Joue-Les-Tours, near Tours, central France. French prosecutors have launched an investigation after a video showing a police officer beating a black woman with a baton and spraying tear gas directly into her face sparked outrage. Filmed early on August 18, 2013, in the Tours suburb of Joue-les-Tours, the eight-minute video filmed by the young local resident and which has been viewed more than 690,000 times on YouTube, was filmed from the upper storey of a building and shows two police officers trying to subdue a woman in the street.
