French security forces have clashed with petrol-bomb-wielding rioters in a Paris suburb after a teenager died while fleeing a police identity check.

Some 40 rioters in an eastern Paris suburb, Bagnolet, hurled Molotov cocktails at police and firefighters and torched 29 cars in a rampage provoked by the death of a teen pizza deliverer, Yacou Sanago.

The 18-year-old pizza deliverer died en route to hospital after he lost control of his motorcycle and hit a metal barrier as he was trying to flee a identity check by police, police officials speaking on condition of anonymity said.
