A 14-year-old boy was killed when violent clashes erupted across France following their World Cup victory over Morocco.

The teen was run down in the southern city of Montpellier by a hatchback waving a French flag.

Shocking footage shows a group trying to get the flag as they walked down Rue de la Mosson when suddenly the driver makes a U-turn, smashing into the boy before driving off.

Local authorities confirmed the boy tragically died after a car ploughed into him amid the chaos in the city.

Cops were pummelled by fireworks in Paris as thousands poured into the streets to celebrate after France beat Morocco 2-0 to reach the final.

Another shocking footage shows chaotic scenes as fans bombarded riot cops with a stream of fireworks before the officers were forced to flee the line of fire.

Another clip in the French capital shows police pushing back fans as they set off flares at the Champs Elysees.

Rowdy fans chanted as hundreds of cars paraded past the crowds sounding their horns and waving flags from the windows.

French cops said 115 arrests had been made in Paris by the early hours of Thursday morning, Le Parisien reports.

In the French city of Montpellier, shocking footage also showed fans chucking chairs, fireworks and rocks at riot cops – and climbing the landmark fountain.

People could be seen darting for cover as fireworks were flung across a square.

Riot cops were also blasted by fireworks in the French city of Lyon, while clashes broke out between fans in Nice, and chaos also erupted on the streets of Bordeaux.

In Brussels, according to The Sun, police deployed tear gas and water cannons after scuffles broke out and fans set fires in the street and threw fireworks.

Dozens were reportedly arrested in the Belgian capital after the unrest.

There are about 1.5 million Moroccans that live in France.
