Mon dieu! French police pee on street near Qatari embassy (PHOTO)

Mon dieu! French police pee on street near Qatari embassy (PHOTO)

A group of French cops decided to take a break from their protest policing duties to urinate in the open on a street meters away from Qatar’s embassy in the capital.

Correction: An earlier version of this story erroneously identified the property in question as the Qatari Embassy.

The embarrassing moment was captured on Saturday as authorities in France’s capital were busy dealing with Yellow Vest protesters demonstrating across the city. More than 100 people have been arrested in the protests against Emmanuel Macron’s fuel reforms.

Four police wearing riot gear lined up to take a leak against the black fence, while another policeman appeared to be keeping watch.

The image was taken by RT journalist Peter George Oliver, who said the police team’s sergeant wasn’t happy with him snapping the awkward moment.

The prominent spot the officers chose to relieve themselves is right by the hugely popular tourist site, and focal point of the protests, the Arc de Triomphe.
