Riots in Paris suburbs

They thought they were being chased but they were not.

       Francois Molins, Local Prosecutor


The riots which erupted in Paris suburbs began after news of the deaths of two young men in Clichy-sous-Bois 27 October. The accident happened when Zyed Benna, 17, and Bouna Traore, 15, climbed into an electrical sub-station.
