Thousands have marched in Paris in tribute to a schoolgirl who was found drowned in the Seine, in a case that has shocked France.
Prosecutors last week said two French teenagers were under investigation for murder after police pulled the body of the drowned 14-year-old girl, identified only as Alisha, out of the Seine.
They said the teenagers, a boy and a girl both aged 15, had met the girl, whom they knew, in the suburb of Argenteuil.
The boy had allegedly beaten her and then with his girlfriend’s help thrown her into the river, where she drowned.
French media reported that the victim had been bullied at school and that nude pictures of her had been hacked and circulated on social media.
Le Parisien newspaper said more than 2500 people participated in Sunday’s march, which started at the girl’s school.
France has seen a spate of youth killings in recent weeks, mostly involving gangs, putting growing pressure on the government.
Junior interior minister Marlene Schiappa said on France Info radio that a committee of parents would be set up in the coming week to address the problem of harassment at school.
