    (ANSAmed) - PARIS, JUNE 6 - A nineteen-year-old anti-fascist has been pronounced clinically brain dead after an attack Wednesday night in central Paris by three skinheads. All of the attackers managed to flee the scene. The French left has called for large demonstrations to take place on Thursday. The political science student Clement Meric was mortally injured by one of the skinheads, who punched him and caused him to knock his head against a traffic cone near the Saint-Lazare train station. Rescue workers found the young man in dire condition and proceeded to declare him brain dead. The young attackers - including a girl - wanted by the police allegedly belong to the Jeune Nationaliste Revolutionnaire group.

    Several organisations including the Front de Gauche have called on their supporters to hold protest marches Thursday. One of the gathering spots will be Place Saint-Michel, while students will meet in front of the political science faculty at the university. (ANSAmed).
