On the night of December 5 to 6, 1986, Malik Oussekine died following a police intervention, while Paris was rocked by student demonstrations against a new education reform. The Ministry of the Interior is all the more inclined to hush up this affair, as another Frenchman of Algerian origin, Abdel, was killed the same night by a police officer.
