“Incidents” in France after a “youth” dies evading police

“After his death, at least 50 youths took to the streets and started to break windows at the entrance of Gabelle, an outskirt of the city. The youths also burned garbage, tires, a motorcycle and five vehicles in a shipyard, said the police. When the Police and the fire-fighters arrived on the scène, protesters threw stones and Molotov cocktails against them. Then, the police retaliate by firing tear gas but it was unable to enter into Gabelle.”

Think about that last sentence for a minute.

“France/Civil unrest: clashes erupted in Fréjus after a young man killed himself,” fromESISC, October 26 (thanks to JW):

Violent clashes erupted late on Sunday in the town of Fréjus (south of France) after Mohamed El Matari, a 21 years-old Moroccan national, living in the city killed himself while he was trying to steer clear of a roadblock. According to Simon Babri, the chief of staff of the Prefect, “initially, at 17h30, the young man turned back to avoid a roadblock at the entrance of Fréjus and he fled. He tried to bypass a second roadblock and by driving on the bottom side of the road it hit a tree”.

After his death, at least 50 youths took to the streets and started to break windows at the entrance of Gabelle, an outskirt of the city. The youths also burned garbage, tires, a motorcycle and five vehicles in a shipyard, said the police. When the Police and the fire-fighters arrived on the scène, protesters threw stones and Molotov cocktails against them. Then, the police retaliated by firing tear gas but it was unable to enter into Gabelle.

No wounded have been reported during the incidents. According to a statement published by the prefecture of the Var region, “at midnight the police were able to take position inside the area and to restore calm.” However, police stay in the area during the night to prevent any other incidents.

  1. This is awful. I lived in Frejus; it was a pretty old-town. So again we see no benefits in immigration. Or am I wrong? Do Muslims get benefits? In the UK we have them making a bee-line for benefits. So is France’s welfare aas abused as our benefits/welfare system in the UK
