Emotions have spilled over between anti-government protesters and mourners near the scene where a French priest was murdered yesterday.
As ITV News correspondent Juliet Bremner reported live from the scene, there was an angry confrontation between a group holding a banner in protest at the leadership of President Francois Hollande and people who had come to pay their respects to Father Jacques Hamel, who was killed.
Police eventually moved in to separate the groups.
"There is growing fury that this government doesn't seem to be able to provide the security that will keep people safe," Juliet explained.
"The people that were unfurling the banner have angered others who've come here to lay their flowers, their candles and to write in a book of condolence and want to see unity in the name of the priest who lost his life."
Religious leaders in France have called for unity after a meeting with President Francois Hollande.
It follows the murder of a priest in Normandy by supporters of the so-called Islamic State group.
Paris Imam Dalil Boubakeur said France's Muslims must ensure clerics are better trained and called for reform of French Muslim institutions.
The Archbishop of Paris, Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois, called on Catholics to "overcome hatred that comes in their heart" and not to "enter the game" of IS that "wants to set children of the same family in opposition to each other".
