A man of about fifty years has attempted to set himself on Thursday evening, around 7pm, Place de la Republique, at the foot of the central statue in Paris.

The man, aged 50 years,  shouted,  “Let me die. I am a victim of injustice “ . Soon people have hardly tried to extinguish the flames. It took fifteen people and four police officers to deal with them. Fire fighters were quick to the scene to assist the individual.

Place de la Republique is where the nightly #NuitDebout protest takes place, but at the time the square was not packed with people but still many people were coming.
