900 vehicles burnt in France overnight; Paris prosecutor says it's 'organised', blogs inciting further riots

PARIS (AFP) - Nearly 900 vehicles were torched and 250-plus people arrested as French police desperately battled the country's worst rioting for decades, which has now raged for nine consecutive nights.

...

Paris prosecutor general Yves Bot said that 897 vehicles had been burnt overnight Friday, including 656 in the Paris region.

Questioned on Europe 1 radio, Bot spoke of "organised violence" but did not say by whom.

"If I could give an exact answer, those people would already be under arrest," he said. "But we can see organised actions, a strategy."

Bot said that weblogs were asking other French cities to join the rioting in the Paris region.

Incidents on a smaller scale were reported in the southern cities of Toulouse and Nice, and in Lille and Rennes to the north.

Doesn't sound good. But not many deaths so far.

It's the Gallic answer to 10% unemployment. Clark shifts them onto sickness benefit and Wananga statistics. Chirac burns 600 cars per day and then gives them all jobs with renault and peugot. No wonder these 'youths of North African origin' like France. Cars aree so much easier to burn than camels.

Watch for this to be used as a reason to control the internet.
