A French policeman has been suspended and faces criminal charges after being filmed repeatedly punching a black community leader in a troubled Paris suburb.

Disturbing video posted on social media shows Lamine Ba, 34, being pulled to the ground and scuffling with the unidentified officer.

The policeman then punches Mr Ba full in the face, as an impromptu boxing match breaks out in the street in Sevran, a town in the Seine-Saint-Denis department, north east of Paris.

It is the latest in a series of alleged racist attacks by police that has caused outrage around the high-immigrant estates that surround the French capital.
