    A 22-year-old man lost his hand and several other people were also injured amid clashes as police tried to break up an unauthorised rave party in western France, authorities said Saturday.

    Tensions erupted in a field near the Brittany town of Redon on Friday night, just two days before France lifts an overnight virus curfew that’s been in place for more than eight months – and has prompted growing frustration among young people.

    Police repeatedly fired tear gas and charged clusters of violent partygoers who hurled metal balls, petrol bombs and other projectiles, according to the top government official in the region, prefect Emmanuel Berthier. Images of the clashes shared online also bore this out.

    Local authorities estimated about 1,500 people took part in the event despite a local ordinance banning it.
