dave birch Posted July 14, 2009 Share Posted July 14, 2009 More than 300 cars have been set on fire and 240 people arrested in cities across France as rioting youths disrupt Bastille Day events. The number of youths arrested is double the figure for those detained in the same period last year as extra police were deployed in an attempt to quell the violence. There was also a 6 per cent increase in the number of cars burned out. Several police suffered slight injuries, mainly hearing problems caused by fireworks and small explosive devices. The police described the night as relatively calm without major incident. Love to see it when it gets serious Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
