PARIS (AP) — Authorities in France have opened an investigation for attempted murder after a news photographer was attacked and seriously injured while reporting on a suspected outbreak of youth violence, his newspaper said.
The newspaper L’Union said Sunday that Christian Lantenois, 65, was in a serious but stable condition at a hospital in Reims in northeast France.
The photographer was attacked Saturday while covering reports that youths, some apparently armed with metal bars and golf clubs, had massed in a sector of high-rise housing in the city, the newspaper said.
It said he appears to have been hit on the head by a projectile. The newspaper said Lantenois appears to have been attacked because he is a journalist. It said he had driven to the neighborhood in a car bearing the newspaper’s name.
The prosecutors’ office in Reims is investigating the attack as an attempted murder, L’Union said.

Luol Deng says Bulls would have won a title if Derrick Rose didnt get hurt
It’s one of the greatest “what-ifs” of the last 20 years in basketball: What if Derrick Rose never got hurt? Former Bulls forward Luol Deng thinks they’d have won an NBA championship.
According to former Chicago Bulls teammate Luol Deng, the Bulls would have won a title.
For his part, Deng has often been described as the backbone of the Bulls, a 6-foot-9 small forward who was ingeniously utilized in Thibodeau’s style of play. His defense may have been his strongest suit and he was usually assigned to guard the opposing team’s best perimeter player.
Little did they know, Rose’s injury would change the history of their franchise forever (Rose’s ridiculous proneness to injury has led to him sitting out for 257 games over eight seasons). As Deng posits, a non-injured Rose may well have catapulted the Bulls into NBA glory, but who can really tell for sure?Next: Chicago Bulls: Aggressiveness, ball movement return in wins
