2nd Night of Violence in French City

2nd Night of Violence in French City

PARIS (AP) -- France's western city of Nantes has undergone a second night of violence over the fatal police shooting of a driver apparently trying to avoid an identity check.

Protesters clashed with riot police overnight into Thursday, burning stores and cars. Eleven people were detained in connection with the violence.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, speaking from Nantes Thursday morning, expressed his "firmest condemnation" of the violence and vowed full transparency in the investigation over the circumstances of the 22-year-old's death on Tuesday.

Authorities have said the man had been sought under a year-old arrest warrant for an alleged robbery south of Paris, and had given police a false identity when stopped in Nantes.

A silent march has been planned for Thursday evening in Nantes over his death.
