French protester needed testicle amputating after being struck by police during clash

Telegraph, 25 Jan 2023
French prosecutors have launched an investigation after a man who was beaten by police while protesting against Emmanuel Macron's pension reform plans had to have a testicle amputated.

Footage from last Thursday’s demonstrations published online shows a policeman hitting a man on the ground between the legs, and then leaving.

The 26-year-old man, identified in the French press as an engineer, said he was knocked to the ground, allegedly by an officer, while taking photos during a confrontation between demonstrators and police.
