  • Description

    NORTH AMERICANS AND JEWS CLASHED IN THE PARIS DISTRICT OF BELLEVILLE YESTERDAY (MONDAY) FOR THE SECOND TIME IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS. CLUBS, KNIVES AND BOTTLES WERE SAID BY POLICE TO HAVE BEEN USED IN FIGHTS IN THE AREA.

    POLICE UNITS HAD BEEN STANDING BY FOLLOWING THE TROUBLE ON THE PREVIOUS NIGHT AND IMMEDIATELY STEPPED IN TO SEPARATE THE TWO GROUPS.

    ONE BRAWL, WHICH STARTED WITH A DISPUTE OVER A GAME OF CARDS, TURNED INTO A RUNNING INTER-COMMUNITY STREET BATTLE. SEVERAL SHOPS HAD THEIR WINDOWS BROKEN AND ONE WAS RANSACKED.

    BOTH SIDES WERE URGED TO CALM DOWN AND END THE VIOLENCE BY ARAB STUDENT ORGANISATIONS IN FRANCE AND THE INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE AGAINST RACISM AND ANTI-SEMITISM.
