Amateur video has emerged showing violent clashes between groups of migrants that had erupted on Thursday in northern Paris near Stalingrad metro station.

The video, filmed by resident Arnault Chene from his apartment on Boulevard de la Villette, shows groups of men, carrying wooden planks and metal poles, throwing objects at each other.

According to the author of the video, a first battle erupted between groups of migrants living near the subway station started around 9 p.m. which was rapidly stopped by police. Clashes started again two hours later and became much more violent that the first time.

During about 20 minutes, migrants were seen fighting against each other and throwing objects in a fierce battle that hospitalized several, local media said. Migrants living near the subway station arrived on March 30th and most of them came from Calais, Arnault Chene said.
