France: Tensions flare as Anti-fascist activist given five years in jail
A standoff between Anti-fascist activists and police erupted in a Paris courthouse Wednesday after the court sentenced one member to five years in prison. 

Antonin Bernanos was prosecuted alongside nine others for burning a police car in Paris on Mai 2016.

Tensions flared between police and the protesters with many shouting anti-police slogans such as "everyone hates the police". 

Bernano's lawyer Arié Alimi said the fact that the judge accepted accepted his clients guilt after having expressed many doubts during the hearing seemed contradictory.
