French politicians say they will totally rewrite part of a controversial security bill amid national outrage over a police assault on a black man.
There were huge protests across France on Saturday against Article 24 of the bill, which aims to regulate how people share film or photos of police.
There are fears the new law could stop people exposing police brutality.
Four policemen are now under criminal investigation over the beating of black music producer Michel Zecler in Paris.
The assault happened at his studio earlier this month and the video surfaced last week.
Christophe Castaner, the head of President Emmanuel Macron’s group of centrist MPs in parliament, said Article 24 “will be completely rewritten and a new version will be submitted”.
“We know that doubts persist about it,” the ex-interior minister explained, “while we can never tolerate any reduction of press freedom or images.
“Article 24 would not have affected in any way the spread of those images we’ve seen in recent days,” he added.
