PARIS — Two police officers in France have been suspended after being heard racially insulting a man after arresting him in a deprived Paris suburb in a video that went viral on social media, the police commissioner said on Twitter Monday. “With the approval of the Interior minister, the chief of police Didier Lallemant has asked the head of the national police to suspend the two officers involved in uttering racial comments heard on a video circulated on social media on April 26,” the police prefecture said on Twitter.
