Anti-French Algerian football fans tear down statue of France’s historic leader Charles de Gaulle

After their national football team had been crowned as the champion of the African Cup of Nations, hundreds of rowdy, anti-French Algerian fans made their way to the city center of Paris to celebrate their team’s success.

Although the final match took place in Egypt between Senegal and Algeria, it prompted unruly celebrations by Algerians in the streets of Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Strasbourg, and Toulouse. France was not represented in the competition.

But celebrations started to look more like riots when the anti-French Algerian migrants began tearing down a historic statue of French General Charles de Gaulle while cheering gleefully. At one point, one of the Algerians tries to drop-kick the statue before it’s finally torn down to the cheers of onlookers.
