Police fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse an angry crowd in a town on the outskirts of Paris where clashes erupted on Wednesday night after they questioned a woman wearing a full facial veil, which is banned in France.
A police source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the trouble started when police stopped a 25-year-old woman in the centre of Argenteuil, a suburb north-west of Paris, who was wearing a full-face Muslim veil, or niqab.
A passer-by got involved, calling the check "illegitimate", and soon a crowd of about 60 people gathered and attacked the police, who called for back-up, said the source.
"The police were insulted and beaten," he said.
A 32-year-old resident who asked not to be named, said police fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the crowd in Argenteuil, which has a large Muslim population.
The police source said two men, including a cousin of the young woman, were arrested. Some 40 police officers were called to break up the clashes.

What happens in France is intolerable. A true fascism attempts to stifle dissenting voice in our country, with the active complicity of the government Ayrault.
Those who threaten our country that are not Esteban Morillo but who, at the Trocadero, from suburban Islamized, are able to loot, destroy, burn. Those in the cities, impose sharia through violence to non-Muslims and moderate Muslims born said. Those who form 60-70% of offenders in our prisons. Those around prohibit freedom of thought, speech, debate, such as "antifa" which included Clement Meric. Through intimidation and violence they purport to impose lovers France silence and even the disappearance of the political field. They attack Republicans simple singing the Marseillaise, they attack Dupont-Aignan or Marine Le Pen they prohibit presence and speech ...
And all this for the Ayrault government condones their exactions or even justifies and encourages requesting the dissolution of groups that are in the crosshairs of antifa.
That's why Republican Resistance calls on all lovers of freedom, justice and our country coming Denfert-Rochereau June 22 at 13:30. It is urgent to ask, in turn, the dissolution of the National Assembly which allows Ayrault government deliberately apply a two-tiered justice, to betray the people and expose them to increased insecurity and application of Sharia.
