French police arrest over 100 after Halloween

French police arrested more than 100 people in Paris and Lyon on Halloween night during a Purge-style rampage, Daily Mail reported quoting AFP.

Officers were attacked with acid, a sports store was looted, bins were set ablaze and fireworks let off in a night of violence sparked by a Snapchat post.

In the video the man, a 19-year-old from Grenoble, called for a 'Purge' against police on Halloween, inspired by the American film where all crimes are legal for a night.
