On this day in 1961, scores of Algerian demonstrators were massacred by police in Paris. They had been marching in support of the Algerian National Liberation Front which was fighting for independence from France. Up to over 200 demonstrators were beaten to death, robbed by police and thrown in the River Seine.

The chief of police at the time had been a prominent Nazi collaborator. At the time the French media hardly covered the killings, and the government only eventually admitted it occurred and 40 were killed in 1998.
