At least eleven people were arrested in Normandy this Sunday when they protested French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin in response to the investigation he is being subjected to for an alleged violation.
The protest took place during a memorial service to commemorate a French priest who was killed by the Islamic State terrorist organization.
It was Father Jacques Hamel who died in the 2016 attack near the city of Rouen in the north of the country. First, two attackers took hostages during the morning mass in a Catholic church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen. Then they murdered the 85-year-old priest in cold blood. Both attackers were shot by the police.
When Darmanin delivered the speech, he was reprimanded by demonstrators who reminded him of the investigation that was bothering him again.
