Clement Meric, an 18-year-old far-left activist died in a Paris hospital on Thursday after having been beaten up by skinheads in the French capital. The young activist lost consciousness after being beaten by several skinheads and was hospitalized. Meric succumbed to his injuries on Thursday.

This isn't the first brutal, anti-LGBT attack in France in 2013. In April, Wilfred de Bruijn was brutally beaten in an attack that he feels shows the true "face of homophobia" in France.
