Firefighters extinguish a burning barricade made with the material of a summer outdoor event in central Nantes on August 3, 2019 on the sidelines of a gathering called in memory of Steve Maia Caniço whose body was found in the River Loire a month after he went missing during a police raid on a music festival. Steve Maia Canico, 24, went missing on the night of June 21-22 after officers in the western city of Nantes moved in to disperse techno music fans attending a free concert as part of France’s national music celebration day. More than a dozen concertgoers fell into the nearby River Loire during clashes with the police, prompting accusations of excessive force by officers trying to shut the party down. / AFP / JEAN-FRANCOIS MONIER
