 Rioting in Paris

[img]http://www.sermonindex.net/images/forum/2004/may/featured_news.gif[/img]

PARIS, Nov. 3 - Angry youths clashed with police and firefighters outside Paris late Wednesday in the worst of seven straight nights of violence set off by the accidental death of two teenagers. By late Thursday, more cars were burning in at least one of the city's northern suburbs.
Gunshots were fired at police officers and firefighters in three separate incidents Wednesday night, said Prefect Jean-François Cordet, the government's top official in Seine-St.-Denis, a department north of Paris that includes a belt of working-class neighborhoods with a large immigrant population from North Africa and the sub-Saharan region.

In the clashes on Wednesday night, a police station was ransacked, a garage was set on fire and a shopping center and two schools were vandalized, Mr. Cordet said. Riot police forces have used tear gas and rubber bullets to repel the attacks.

Traffic was halted Thursday morning on a commuter line linking Paris to Charles de Gaulle airport after stone-throwing rioters attacked two trains. One passenger was slightly injured by broken glass, according to local news reports. The violence picked up again as night fell with burning cars reported in the suburb of Stains.

 Re: Rioting in Paris

Eight days ago two young north Africans (Algerians or Maroccans) were electrocuted after taking refuge in a EDF (France's National Eclectricity Supplier) power supply because they thought they were being chased by the police. These two youngsters were probably up to mischief.

This eastern suburb of Paris is populated by underprivileged people, most of them are arabs. Gangs took to the streets as they believed the police force to be directly responsible for the death of the two youths.

It seems that the French government is quite incapable of dealing with hundreds of street gangs. These have burned down, so far, five major factory depots, hundreds of cars and dozens of buses, among other things. The situation is cahotic, and the coming week-end doesn't look promising.

 Re:

This really shows how the world cannot handle its own people. Without God we are going into bad places. Chaos is the opposite of the God of order we serve. May God bring healing and the gospel of Christ to the country of france that needs it so badly.

 Re:

If this Theodore Dalrymple essay titled Barbarians at the Gates of Paris (2002) is accurate then these riots are only the beginnings of troubles for La Cite De La Lumiere.
