From Yahoo! France, translated by myself:
A France 2 team assaulted in Clichy-sous-Bois
A team from the television station France 2 was assaulted at Clichy-sous-Bois, in Seine-Saint-Denis, by three hooded men armed with lead pipes, according to the administration of national police.
The assault took place around 3:30 pm in the neighborhood of Chene Pointu where 6 representatives from the station, of which two were interns, were in the middle of a report.
Two members of the team were beaten, among them the cameraman who was lightly wounded in the head and hospitalized. Two others took refuge in a firehouse. They were later taken to safety by police.
The team's car was damaged and the station's camera and two bags were stolen.
[Etienne Leenhardt,] France 2's adjuct director of information confirmed that a cameraman had been seriously injured and "hospitalized for several hours", without specifying further details of the assault.
"We try to do our job and, unfortunately, these are things that happen", [said Leenhardt.]
France 2's own website has a small notice of the assault, only this time the spokesman for the station mentions that the cameraman was "wounded to the head seriously enough to be hospitalized. He did not lose consciousness, but his head would was quite deep."
And so, with a gallic shrug of the shoulders, these are the things that happen, in France.
C'est la vie!
