Tourists in Paris gassed by police after being caught in pro-Palestine protests

A British family on holiday were tear-gassed by French police when they accidentally got caught in pro-Palestine protests. Mum-of-one Radia Austin, 46, has questioned if Paris is a safe place to host the Olympics in July after son Lawrence, eight, was left with acute eye problems. She says the schoolboy was left screaming in agony after police "blindly" threw tear gas canisters into the crowd of protestors. Radia, Lawrence, and dad Paul Austin, 45, were returning to their apartment nearby when one of the canisters landed at the lad's feet. And she says despite approaching the police for help they were simply told to “wash his eyes”. Two weeks on, she says Lawrence is still struggling with throbbing pain is his eyes and is booked in to see a specialist.
