Violence continues in Paris...

This deserves much bigger play in the mainstream media...
Six police officers were injured and 11 people detained following the fourth night of rioting in the Paris suburb city of Clichy-sous-Bois, on Sunday night and early Monday.

French riot police were confronted with youths burning cars and setting garbage bins on fire, authorities of the Seine-Saint-Denis region said.

Angry youths accused them of using teargas in a mosque while worshippers were praying.

"There was somebody else who was saying 'no, no it's a mosque!' but they said it doesn't matter because we have received the order to demolish everything." one said.

Six police officers were slightly injured after being hit by projectiles.

Eleven people were arrested after the violence in which eight cars and 16 rubbish bins were torched.

The violence was originally triggered when two teenagers, aged 15 and 17, died by electrocution on Thursday after they scaled the wall of an electrical relay station and fell against a transformer.
