By early Sunday, on the fifth night of turmoil brought on by the deadly police shooting of a 17-year-old who was put to rest the day before, French authorities had sent reinforcements to key cities and had made hundreds of arrests.

The interior ministry reported that 486 individuals had been detained around France as of 3 a.m. (0100 GMT) on Sunday, despite the fact that the degree of violence appeared to have decreased since riots over Nahel M’s murder initially erupted.

On Tuesday in the Nanterre neighborhood of Paris, Gerald Darmanin, the minister of the interior, tweeted early on Sunday, “A calmer night thanks to the resolute action of the security forces.

Forty-five thousand personnel of the security forces will be deployed overnight, according to a statement made by Darmanin to the media earlier.

However, more soldiers and equipment were dispatched to Marseille, Grenoble, and Lyon, which had previously seen violent unrest.

One hundred ninety-four people had been detained as of 3:00 a.m. Sunday in Paris and the surrounding areas, where some 7,000 cops were on duty.

Police in Marseille dispersed young groups on Saturday night at Canebiere, the major street that runs through the heart of the city, according to AFP journalists.

By midnight, Lyon and Marseille police reported fewer occurrences than the previous night, and as of 1:30 am, 77 people had been detained in each city.

Overnight curfews have been implemented in some locations.
