. ‘It was war’: party-goer loses hand amid clashes with French police at illegal rave « JO LEE MAGAZINE

THE GUARDIAN/French police clashed for hours with party-goers at a 1,500-strong illegal rave over the weekend, with one party-goer losing a hand and five officers injured.

Local official Emmanuel Berthier said party-goers threw “Molotov cocktails, metal balls and bits of breeze blocks” at officers during “very violent clashes” in western France.

The unrest began on Friday night when the crowd defied an 11pm coronavirus curfew and police then fired teargas to disperse them, sparking more than seven hours of violence, Berthier said.
