Hundreds including police officers injured in New Caledonia unrest


 , Updated 14:43, 15-May-2024

Hundreds of people including "around 100" police officers and gendarmes have been injured in unrest in New Caledonia, French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said on Wednesday.

Darmanin said that authorities were yet to establish the "circumstances" that led to one person being shot dead overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday, and that dozens of homes and businesses had been torched during rioting linked to anger over constitutional reforms.
