 1. On New Year's Eve in France, the police detained 490 people, and 690 cars were burned during the riots, the French Interior Ministry said.

"2022 is thus becoming the year in which the smallest number of cars were burned and the largest number of arrests were made on New Year's Eve," Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin tweeted.

On the streets of the country on a festive night, 90 thousand policemen and gendarmes were on duty. Among them, too, there are victims, said Darmanen.

Last New Year's Eve, 441 people were detained on the French streets and 874 cars were burned.
