Riots Spread In France
Posted on Nov 27, 2007
Unrest has broken out in the city of Toulouse in southern France as riots continued for a third night in Paris. France’s prime minister has called the youths involved “criminals,” and President Nicolas Sarkozy has scheduled an emergency meeting of his security staff for Wednesday.
At least 10 cars have been burned and a fire broke out at a library in Toulouse, southern France, following consecutive nights of rioting in Paris.
There was also more violence in the capital as youths set cars on fire in the suburb of Villiers-le-Bel, the Associated Press news agency reports.
Violence broke out there on Sunday after two teenagers died when their motorbike collided with a police car.
