Telegraph: French «youths» set on fire more than 300 cars overnight cars and wounded 13 policemen in street violence on the eve of the Bastille Day national holiday.
As French troops and their guests of honour from the Indian army made last minute preparations for the July 14 parade on the Champs Elysees in Paris, the suburbs of major cities were contemplating another clean-up operation.
Police headquarters in Paris had recorded 317 burnt out cars and 240 arrests, almost double the total for the same period last year.
These numbers were expected to increase as fresh reports came in.
The injured officers, 12 members of the police and one gendarme, were mainly suffering from hearing difficulties after being targeted by youths throwing fireworks and small-scale home-made explosives.
