Sixth night of riots in Paris Minister accused of inflaming tensions PARIS, France (AP) -- Violence erupted for a sixth night Tuesday in the troubled suburbs northeast of Paris with police firing rubber bullets and tear gas as they faced down gangs of youths in Aulnay-sous-Bois, according to witnesses. A store set afire in the nearby suburb of Bondy, France-Info radio reported. No trouble was immediately reported in Clichy-sous-Bois, where rioting began last Thursday following the accidental deaths of two teenagers. The latest violence broke out as Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy met in Paris with youths and officials from Clichy-sous-Bois.

*tsk tsk*...the french have domestic problems.
Is it true that these are areas heavily populated with a majority of muslims? Can anyone verify that?
If so, isn't it curious that is not mentioned anywhere in this snippet?
Prediction: France will find a hear-to-four unknown capacity for capitulation in the face of violence.
The northern suburbs of Paris are heavily Muslim.
They had better start deporting. I know some of these rioters are 2nd generation, but ship their parents back and they have to go with them.
Wow, no mention of who is doing the riots. I bet it is those pesky Mennonites again.
They're really at pains to avoid saying "Muslim," aren't they?
If true, then its omission is not all that curious when you realize that nothing must get in the way of the 'diversity is our greatest strength' platitude.
I really think they need to find a way to "talk about it". After all, shouldn't we all be able to put down our guns and settle things peacefully? can't we all just get along?
A little what-goes-around-comes-around. I'm so glad that the French are so "sophisticated" and know how to handle these things better than we do, the "crude stupid cowboy bullies" of the world!
We have the potential for similar problems in our cities.
Anybody home to answer???
I doubt it
Do you think our authorities would allow our "problem" to riot for six nights straight.
I don't think so
As usual, CNN sides with the fanatics.
Have to scour the article to find a mention of which scum is rioting.
