WIDESPREAD suburban rioting spilled into central Paris last night as hundreds went on the rampage over the alleged rape of a young black man by French police.

Officers were forced to unleash tear-gas on angry crowds as buildings and rubbish bins were set on fire around the Barbes Metro station, which is just around the corner from the Eurostar hub at Gare du Nord.

As fire crews went in to extinguish the blazes, lines of riot police were attacked, and shops were looted.

A policeman at the scene said: “Windows have been smashed and officers attacked.

“Small groups of protestors wearing hoods to hide their identities are causing trouble and then running away.

“Everything is being done to try and disperse the crowds, but this could go on for a long time yet.”

Tension have been high in council estates in the Paris suburbs since February 2, when a man identified only as Theo was beaten up and allegedly raped.

      If these guys are always yelling “Allah Akbar!” or whatever they are saying, they can’t be REAL Muslims any more than a Christian or Jew doing something against THEIR religion. Right now, there are literally thousands of “terrorists” around the world that are actually mercenaries being funded and trained in these types of provocateur actions. Why are they doing these things? Not to bring down any government per see, unless, of course, that government has reservations about prosecuting the war on terror. All you have to see is the nations doing the main push in the “war on terror”(USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc) to see the nations behind these trained and paid mercenaries! You need “terrorism” and all that it brings to have a war on terror. It’s the oldest trick in the book- scare and stampede people’s feelings into accepting perpetual wars, because traditionally during wars the people’s civil liberties are curtailed to “protect the war effort”. We live in a bad-ass matrix!

        Moronic blob, it’s not against their religion to kill for their profit, it’s the main component of their socially constructed belief system, lie down, stick your thumb in your mouth and rock yourself to sleep, this is way above your pay grade.

    Mate this is because a policeman rammed his button up some black guy’s butt. This was nothing to do with refugees. Outrageous fake news written by the main supporter of Trump…unbelievable. It seems this story is all about hate of sanctuary cities such as Paris. Well done Paris.

    Inhabitants in these areas of Paris are enraged by unaccountable police violence. “Mistreatment” of a suspect actually relates to a group of police beating up a black youth and inserting a ‘matrac’ so far up his anus that he required hospital treatment and remained for over a week to recover. A few days later another victim came forward with a similar allegation. A black youth died last year in the same area following a ‘robust’ arrest. French authorities respond by increasing police powers, reducing their accountability, flooding the area with militarised police. A ‘state of emergency’ has been in force for months. Most of the inhabitants are ethnic minorities but have occupied the area for generations. France responds by, “do what you’ve always done, get what you’ve always got.”
