Four charged with attempted murder after police car torched

Four men were charged with attempted murder Saturday over the torching of a police car while two officers were inside during a protest in Paris this week, prosecutors said. The incident, which was caught on camera and widely shared on social media, occurred on Wednesday on the sidelines of a rare demonstration by French police against “anti-cop hatred”. “Investigations are continuing to determine their exact roles in the incident, and whether any other possible suspects should be arrested,” the prosecutor’s office in Paris said after the charges were read out by an investigating judge.
