FRANCE: 'African Gang' Beats Man With Iron Bars, Hockey Sticks

Shocking video depicts a gang savagely beating a defenseless man with a variety of weapons in a Paris suburb, according to reports.

Le Parisien detailed circumstances surrounding the incident, which unfolded in Garges-lès-Gonesse, but failed to include the footage.

Belgian political party Vlaams Belang shared the disturbing video to their Facebook page, where it has quickly gone viral, racking up nearly 200,000 views in six hours.

"The video images show how a young man is heavily battered by an African gang with, among other things, iron bars, hockey sticks and [metal] petanque balls," Sceptr reports.

An "ultra-violent brawl" involving roughly 50 people broke out shortly after a shooting in the neighborhood sent two teenagers to hospital, according to Le Parisien.

In the ensuing chaos, a crowd of combatants locate a male hiding under a car outside a residence building and drag him out before proceeding to strike him dozens of times with their weapons. The victim was taken to hospital in serious condition and received 67 stitches in his head.

Police have reportedly arrested three suspects aged 14, 16, and 20, and they are being held in pre-trial detention.

"Shocking images from our neighboring country! We are about to lose control of our continent," Vlaams Belang wrote in the video caption. "Our people are completely abandoned and surrendered to pure barbarism."
