And So It Begins........

French riot police fired tear gas and water cannon at youths lobbing bottles and stones in central Paris to protest the election of Nicolas Sarkozy as president on Sunday.

A number of similar incidents involving thousands of anti-Sarkozy protesters were reported in the suburbs.

Police said at least four police officers and one civilian were injured in the Place de la Bastille confrontation in central Paris, but did not say whether arrests were made.
