It took almost a week before the international media took notice of last month's controversial video of French riot police forcibly evicting immigrants from a housing settlement outside of Paris. Reactions since have been strong and varied.
The story of French riot police forcibly evicting a group of immigrants from an illegal encampment first broke on Wednesday, July 21, and while it received significant exposure in the French media, it took time to pick up traction with the international media.
It was almost a week later before the popular viral video began to make its way across the Web and on to the agenda of the world’s leading English-language news outlets.
