Protesters are said to have screamed abuse and hurled rocks at the first shuttle buses of passengers that arrived in Pointe des Gallets port on Sunday.

The demonstrations erupted despite there being no recorded coronavirus cases on board.

Protesters also threw rocks and bottles at police, according to the Imaz Press Reunion news agency on the island.
