This comes after the country witnessed several days of violent protests after the police allegedly shot and killed a 17-year-old for driving a car without a license.
Discrepancies in the AI-image: In this viral image, we noticed several discrepancies which proved that this is not a real image.
Some figurines of people can be seen standing in middle of the fire on the right side of the image (marked in red circle).
The street lamp seen on the left looks half-cut (marked in yellow circle).
Other things that didn't add up: The image also shows a damaged street but we found no reports or visuals about any such incident from in Paris.
We also checked Google Earth and Google Maps' street view to find similar street and building with the exact same view of the Eiffel Tower as seen in the viral image but found none.
Conclusion: An AI-generated image of destruction near the Eiffel Tower in France's Paris is being linked to the recent violent protests.
