PARIS ON FIRE: Riots reach capital's centre - buildings set ablaze and police attacked
"... and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries..." Albert Pike
WIDESPREAD suburban rioting spilled into central Paris last night as hundreds went on the rampage over the alleged rape of a young black man by French police.
As fire crews went in to extinguish the blazes, lines of riot police were attacked, and shops were looted.
A policeman at the scene said: “Windows have been smashed and officers attacked.
“Small groups of protestors wearing hoods to hide their identities are causing trouble and then running away.
“Everything is being done to try and disperse the crowds, but this could go on for a long time yet.”
The youth worker said he was sodomised by police with a truncheon, as well as being racially abused, spat at and beaten around his genitals.
He underwent emergency surgery, and has since been visited by President Francois Hollande, who has appealed for calm.
