Emmanuel Macron is sent a severed human FINGER in the post

French President Emmanuel Macron is sent a severed human FINGER in the post following riots last week

  • A severed finger was sent to the Elysee Palace following riots across France 
  • Analysis showed the finger belongs to a ‘living human being’ who was contacted

A severed human finger has been sent to French president Emmanuel Macron by first class post. 

The macabre parcel containing the amputated body part arrived at the Elysee Palace in Paris on Monday.

‘The finger was initially put in a fridge where the police put their snacks,’ said a source at the official presidential home. 

‘This was to make sure it was preserved and could be analysed as quickly as possible.’

The finger was later identified as belonging to a ‘living human being,’ who was contacted and ‘given full medical support,’ the source said.

The severed finger was sent to the Elysee Palace – President Macron’s official residence 

There was no note, or any other form of correspondence, accompanying the finger, leaving investigators baffled.

‘It’s not at all clear why this finger was sent to the president,’ the source said.

They noted the owner of the finger would not be identified, for a number of reasons including medical confidentiality.

Bullets are among the sinister items sent to French heads of state over the years, but this is the first time a body part has been received.

The parcel comes during a particularly troubled time for Mr Macron, who has been forced to deal with riots across the country over a variety of social issues. 

These issues range from pension reform to the shooting dead of a 17-year-old French Algerian by a Paris policeman last week.

More disturbances are expected on Friday, when Mr Macron leads the July 14 Bastille Day celebrations in Paris.

Thousands of extra police and gendarmes will be on the street following intelligence warnings that rioters will target France’s national holiday.
