French President Emmanuel Macron has held internal conversations with his interior minister and demanded "firm punishment" against the officers who attacked a Black music producer in Paris on Saturday.

According to The Guardian, a witness said Macron was shocked when he saw a video of four officers attacking Michel Zecler in his studio. The source also said the president had "seen red" after viewing the footage on social media, Europe 1 reported.  

“The president was very shocked and immediately called his interior minister,” the witness told Europe 1.

The 13-minute video, published by Loopsider, shows the officers beating Zecler as he enters his studio, allegedly attacking him for not wearing a mask, according to BBC News.
