The president of a French gay association has been beaten in what he said was a homophobic attack on the streets of Paris. Guillaume Mélanie, president of Urgence Homophobie, said he was leaving a restaurant in the centre of the city when the attack happened. He suffered a broken nose and went to hospital for treatment. The story prompted an outpouring of support and condemnation of frequent such attacks in the French capital.

Earlier in October, two men who had been kissing in the city were set upon, both receiving injuries which required hospital treatment.
