Clouds of black smoke could be seen billowing near the Gare de Lyon station — one of six major stations in the French capital — as a row of parked scooters and motorcycles burned.

Police told NBC News that clashes broke out between people attending a concert by singer Fally Ipupa, a star in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and those boycotting it.

Ipupa was set to perform at the AccorHotels Arena on Friday night.

"Scooters were first set on fire then the fire quickly propagated," police said, adding that public demonstrations had previously been banned in the area surrounding the event.
