77 Police Officers Hurt in Paris Riots by NICOLAS GARRIGA from the Associated Press


Rampaging youths rioted overnight in Paris' suburbs, hurling Molotov
cocktails and setting fire to dozens of cars. At least 77 officers
were injured and officers were fired at, a senior police union
official said Tuesday. The violence was more intense than during three
weeks of rioting in 2005, said the official, Patrice Ribeiro. Police
were shot at and are facing 'genuine urban guerillas with conventional
weapons and hunting weapons,' Ribeiro said. ... The riots were
triggered by the deaths of two teens killed in a crash with a police
patrol car on Sunday in Villiers-le-Bel, a town of public housing
blocks home to a mix of Arab, black and white residents in Paris'
northern suburbs. (11/27/07)
