French authorities have suspended three police officers after they were seen on video beating up a black music producer in central Paris.
The incident has prompted a fresh outcry over the conduct of French security forces.
The police were accused of using unnecessary force as they dismantled a makeshift migrant camp in Paris.
The incidents come as the French government tries to bring in laws banning the broadcast of police officers’ faces.
Critics of the legislation say that without such images, none of the incidents which took place over the past week would have come to light.
