Police injured in clashes with Paris May Day protesters

Four police officers were hurt in clashes in Paris on May 1.

A May Day march attended by thousands of people in Paris was disrupted as scores of hooded youths threw gasoline bombs at riot police in full gear, who responded with tear gas and truncheons.

Meanwhile, Le Pen drew ridicule in the press and on social media Tuesday for using chunks of a speech by defeated center-right nominee Francois Fillon, word-for-word, during a rally, in what her campaign said was an attempt to lure the former prime minister's voters.

Le Pen said in an interview on TV channel TF1 news Tuesday night that the deliberate quotation was also meant to create a media "buzz" because "that's the only thing you are interested in".

Unlike Melania Trump, however, Le Pen couldn't care less about trying to convince her critics for stealing her opponent's words.

He criticized Marine Le Pen's "rude manners" and called her "the heir" - a reference to her father, who has been convicted of racism and anti-Semitism.

As for the opposition, Macron said that restrictions regarding such parties were "a classic practice" of the National Front party, headed by Le Pen up to late April.

The founder of the far-right National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen, has called on the French to vote for his daughter Marine Le Pen in Sunday's presidential runoff.




"The National Front is a racist, xenophobic party that is anti-women and anti-workers because it is also an economically liberal party", he said.

"The problem is, yet again, like in 2002, the French electorate is being morally blackmailed, not so much to vote for a Macron they may really be fond of but against Le Pen", he said.

While a string of high-profile figures have come out in support of Mr Macron in recent days - from Zinedine Zidane, the footballer, to Thomas Enders, head of Airbus - the far-Right candidate received a boost over the weekend when Eurosceptic "sovereignist" Nicolas Dupont-Aignan threw his weight behind her.

"I say to them that I am completely aware that on May 7, I will be doing more than defending a political programme, I will be leading the fight for the republic and for a free democracy", he said to roars of approval from supporters.

Standing Monday on the same bridge, Macron hugged Bourram's son Said, who was 9 when his father was killed.

The clashes foreshadowed Sunday's election between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen, the two winners of the first round of France's presidential poll.

The National Front traditionally holds a May Day march in Paris to honour Joan of Arc.

Ms Le Pen mentioned France's "three maritime borders" with the English Channel, North Sea and the Atlantic.
