French police have clashed with protesters angry at the government's new health pass requirement.
Earlier. thousands marched, chanted slogans and held banners in Paris.
The French parliament approved a health bill mandating vaccination for healthcare professionals, and a digital health pass providing proof of being virus-free to enter public places including restaurants, cafes and trains.
The contested law still needs to be validated by the highest constitutional authority, the Constitutional Council, which is likely to deliver a ruling on whether the law oversteps the limits of public freedom next week.
The health pass is proof of vaccination or a negative antigen or PCR test less than 48 hours old.
The measures, including the health pass, are being introduced to stop the spread of a fourth wave of the virus and active circulation of the Delta variant.
