Video of a chanting crowd is from a Mexico music concert, not a protest in France

The June 2023 killing in France of a teenager of Algerian descent by a policeman sparked days of protests and riots in several French cities. In this context, Greek social network users shared a video of thousands of people packed into a city area with audio of loud chants in Arabic. The video is presented as a gathering in response to the shooting. However, this is false. The video shows a free concert by a popular band in central Mexico City. A soundtrack of Islamic chants was added over the images.
