France is revising a plan that could have penalized citizens for sharing images of police officers.

The change to the draft law was announced Monday following mass protests over the weekend.

The law would have punished sharing images of police with "intention of harm."

Opponents worry the law would be used to prevent the exposure of police brutality.
