Thousands of Algerian football fans in Paris celebrated their national team's victory in the Africa Cup of Nations semi-final late Sunday evening (local time), July 14. Groups of fans took to the streets, particularly near Champs Élysées where fans blocked roads and lit flares. Some clashes with police were reported in the area, which had previously experienced unrest during the Bastille Day parades. Similar celebrations and associated disruptions are likely if Algeria wins the finals against Senegal on Saturday, July 20. 


Individuals in Paris, and France more generally, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public gatherings as a precaution, anticipate transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
