Four French police officers charged after beating of black music producer

Four French Police officers have been charged in connection with the beating of a black man in Paris.

Two were kept in jail, while the other two were put on conditional release.

Video carried by the Loopsider website shows how music producer Michel Zecler was repeatedly beaten by three officers for several minutes and subjected to racial abuse as he tried to enter his music studio earlier this month.

Lawyers for the group of three declined to comment after the magistrate’s decision early today.
