More buses were torched in Paris
today, on the anniversary of last year's riots. I wonder how long it'll be before other European 'marauding youths' decide to show their solidarity by setting buses on fire, just like when Greek 'marauding youths' demonstrated their "solidarity with the rioters of the French ghettos"
last year by bombing banks and setting cars on fire.
Police deployed 4,000 reinforcements as marauding youths torched at least two public buses Friday, the anniversary of the deaths of two teenagers that ignited weeks of riots in largely immigrant housing projects across France.
After the buses were burned, Paris' transport authority curtailed bus service in the Seine-Saint-Denis region north of the capital, which is home to thousands of immigrants and their French-born children.
Thierre Ange, a 19-year-old witness, said four men attacked the bus, "made everyone get off, then they hit a woman and dragged out the bus driver by his tie" and torched the bus with a gasoline bomb in a bottle. The blackened carcass of another bus that was burned earlier stood across town in Le Blanc Mesnil.
