Youths fired buckshot at police in clashes in the French city of Amiens overnight on Tuesday, torching cars and a nursery school in a resurgence of urban unrest that President François Hollande said he would do everything to confront.
Officials said 16 police officers were hurt in the disturbances, some struck by buckshot others hit by a hail of missiles thrown by around 100 youths who gathered in northern districts of Amiens.
One officer was in a serious condition, the city's Socialist Mayor Gilles Demailly told Reuters.
As mayor of a racially mixed suburb before being appointed to Hollande's government, (Interior Minister Manuel) Valls served more than 10 years ago as a spokesman for Socialist former Prime Minister Lionel Jospin, whose 2002 presidential election defeat was partly put down to his image as soft on law and order.
Tensions remain high in many French suburbs, where poor job prospects, racial discrimination, a widespread sense of alienation from mainstream society and perceived hostile policing have periodically touched off violence.

Give those Finns too much vodka.....
Where’s the guy who FIXES the headers? Someone forgot ‘MUSLIM TERRORISTS’
What were the demographics of these rioters? “Youths” is generally Eurospeak for violent muslims.
The Arabian Night will be a long one in France, do they have what it takes to stave it off?
Gilles Demailly, the mayor of Amiens, told AFP the violent response to the incident reflected a descent into lawlessness orchestrated by ever younger troublemakers.
“There have been regular incidents here but it has been years since we’ve known a night as violent as this with so much damage done,” the mayor said.
Demailly, a member of Hollande’s Socialist Party, added: “For months I’ve been asking for the means (to alleviate the neighbourhood’s problems) because tension has been mounting here.
“You’ve got gangs of youths playing at being gangsters who have turned the area into a no-go zone. You can no longer order a pizza or get a doctor to come to the house.”
Hollande’s government has identified the northern quarter of Amiens as one of 15 “priority security zones” across the country which will be established from September.
The emphasis will be on tougher policing rather than on schemes to alleviate the impact of record unemployment and falling real incomes for the poorest sections of society.
I did not know there were Amish in France?
If one removes the liberal “truth filter,” the following one for one word substitution can be made:
Youths = muslims
No more need be said.
"Miss me yet?"
The “French” have guns?
Only the “Muslim” youth would know how to fire a weapon.
It’s that “Religion of Peace” thing.....
Now the Worthy Oriental Gentlemen can't understand why they can't all have a French Girlfriend and a new Peugeot. Surprise, surprise. The Frogs need to send some buckshot the other way in these bainleus where even their pussified cops fear to go.
Put some muzzie teeth in the street, Froggie, and put what's left of their former owners on planes back to Muslim Africa.
Worthy Oriental Gentlemen out, before it's too late, Euroweenies.
We must understand that Islam is incompatible with civilization.
The French need to ;earn to embrace and celebrate diversity. It’ll be their strength.
Zee illegal Amish immigration has overtaken our historic ability
to simply out-surrender our opponents.
It is time to call out zee dogs of war!
