Angry youths in a deprived area of the French city of Toulouse have attacked police, torched cars and set fire to garbage during two nights of clashes that have led to 18 arrests, police said Tuesday.
The rioting in the Mirail area of the southern city, a high-crime neighborhood once home to several jihadists, was apparently sparked by the death of a local man in prison and an identity check by police on a veiled woman on Sunday.
After nearly four hours of clashes on Sunday night that saw gangs throw stones at the local police station and set fire to about 10 cars, violence flared again on Monday night.
Security forces were targeted throughout the night and carried out 18 arrests for violence, arson and insults, a statement from top local security official Pascal Mailhos said.

Camerota is just as dumb as her colleague.
By “shenanigans” I was referring to the EU countries deliberately missing their NATO funding targets, BTW.
paraphrased from "West Side Story"
These “deprived ‘rioters’” are only deprived of 1 of 3 options, a short sleep at the base of a guillotine, a long stay a the Bastille, . or a permanent stay at Devil’s Island!
AFP dances around with their terms, noting that Mirail was “once” where “many jihadists” lived, and that the woman who refused to show her ID was “veiled” as if she could have been a devout Catholic.
I was wondering who would notice that. Those “rioters” notice someone like that and they’d make her a target.
Sounds like a “win-win” situation. We’re rid of them - they’re rid of us.
I visited Toulouse four years ago. What a lovely, peaceful city it was then. The locals were so friendly and accommodating to the point of indulging my “southern” French accent.
I hate to read of this event. It makes me so sad to see France and many areas of Europe collapse.
Barbarians in the gates indeed.
“The city is also home to European aerospace giant Airbus.”
How many “more enterprising” immigrants are helping to build new Airbus planes?
Events are shaping up such that if there is a next world war, it will be the world versus the United States of America.
That’s what the US left has been helping along for decades. Make the morals crumble, and then the society; and away goes the last opponent to their dream of world communism; that is their plan. Of course, the other derivative ideologies of national socialism and its Islamic sub-derivative (Nasser was a self-professed Arab national socialist, for example, and the Ba’athists are as well) don’t go away that quickly.
“Current events indicate Toulouse and France dont have much more time.”
That’s what I’m thinking. At some point, soon, France will simply not be able to put-down the rioters and they will start taking control of real estate. At that point their existence as a Western country will be in doubt.
All it took was the second word of the article, “Youths”...
Has a small difference in meaning between here and there.
Leftist euphemisms again.
She can frisk me anytime.
