Muslim Rioting Again Hits France

October 23, 2006 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - French police found themselves once again under attack by firebomb wielding North African Muslim immigrants on Sunday.

The Paris suburb of Grigny was the scene of the pitched battle which featured 50 Islamic youths rampaging through the streets taunting police, pelting them with rocks and torching passenger vehicles including a bus.

Fearing a repeat of last November's riots, the hard-line Action Police CFTC union urged interior minister Sarkozy - the leader of the right of center Gaullist Party - to make a show of force to head off any possible duplication of last year's street warfare which at the time the CFTC called an "insurrection" that resulted in 10 deaths, hundreds of serious injuries and millions of dollars in property damage.
