France riots: Macron postpones Germany trip amid unrest

Update : 02 Jul 2023, 01:32

French President Emmanuel Macron has asked to postpone Sunday's state visit to Germany. Meanwhile, the family of the slain 17-year-old, whose shooting sparked the riots, gathered for a funeral service.

French fashion house Celine has canceled its menswear show in Paris this weekend.

"A fashion show in Paris, while France and its capital are bereaved and bruised, seems... inconsiderate and totally misplaced," Hedi Slimane, the creative director at Celine and an influential fashion designer and photographer, posted to Instagram.

Slimane wrote an update on his account in French, saying that while he was disappointed to cancel the show, there was uncertainty in the atmosphere following this week's protests.

That meant canceling the show was necessary for the security of his team and guests, Slimane said.
