It is undoubtedly the most frequented place by tourists from all over the world.

But it is also, since the deconfinement, a sector under tension where attacks seem to be more and more frequent.

At the foot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris (VIIe), a man was beaten up this Saturday shortly after 7 p.m.

According to the very first elements collected by the police, it would be a fight between street vendors.

The victim, who would be of Pakistani origin, was transported to the European hospital Georges-Pompidou where she had to pass a scanner.

His vital prognosis was then engaged.

His attackers, who would be two in number, are on the run.

They would have left a cart in which they placed the goods sold to tourists.

The nature of the injuries inflicted on the seller to the victim are still uncertain.

According to a source, he was hit with a pipe.

There are also reports of wounds that could be linked to broken bottles.

An investigation has in any case been opened for violence in meetings.

A vast police operation the night before

Coincidence or not, a few hours earlier, the Prefecture of Police announced that a “major operation” had been carried out in the same sector.

It was more specifically the control of Tuk-Tuk vehicles.

Result: two arrests and 30 verbalizations.

Last September, in the Champ-de-Mars sector, a police motorcyclist shot and wounded a 26-year-old homeless man who, according to a police source, had thrown himself at him with a bottle in his hand.

A case which, already, was part of a context of great tension in this district of the capital.

Nearly 50,000 people pass through it every day.

Since the deconfinement, the attacks would be daily there.
