About 40 unidentified people armed with metal bars and using fireworks as projectiles tried to storm a police station in the Paris suburbs on Saturday night, officials said.

'Violent attack last night on the police station of Champigny with mortar shots and various projectiles. No police officer was injured,' the Paris police headquarters said on Twitter on Sunday.

The police posted a video showing a barrage of fireworks going off in the direction of the police station in Champigny-sur-Marne, about nine miles southeast of central Paris. 

The assailants tried to force entry into the station, but failed to do so.
