Saudi Arabia’s embassy in France called on its citizens to exercise caution as protests descended into violent riots across the European country.
The embassy posted a tweet on Friday, urging its citizens to be cautious and to adhere to security alerts and curfew hours issued by the local authorities while staying away from areas of protests.
Furthermore, the Saudi embassy urged citizens to contact the embassy in case of emergency on its numbers.
Protesters in France took to the streets for a third day following the killing of a 17-year-old driver by police last Tuesday.
Following the incident, clashes were reported across suburbs of Paris but some of the most violent confrontations were in Nanterre, where the teenager was shot dead.
The violence was particularly concentrated around the Pablo-Picasso district there, where young people took to the streets after sunset.
On his part, President Emmanuel Macron said the riots were “unjustifiable”.
