Clashes erupted between French police and Congolese anti-government protesters in Paris, Saturday, ahead of a concert by Congolese singer Heir Watanabe at Paris' Olympia music hall, who protesters condemn for his pro-government stance.

The demonstration took place despite a ban by Paris' authorities of any protests within the vicinity of the Olympia music hall on Saturday evening. The Watanabe concert is set to take place at 20:00 local time (18:00 GMT).
