Advice For Travellers

There is tension at this time in the economically-disadvantaged neighbourhoods of Paris. French police have been accused of using excessive force against suspects in these neighbourhoods, reportedly those of primarily African origin.

Travellers should avoid these areas, which include the Aulnay-sous-Bois neighbourhood in the Seine-Saint-Denis prefecture, Tremblay-en-France, and Clichy-Sous-Bois.
