Les chères têtes blondes
The New Year's results are in : 425 cars torched and 362 arrests on New Year's Eve. Both figures are much higher than last year despite a massive police presence and a still active State of Emergency. Those figures do not include the incidents on a New Year's Eve Nice-Lyon train where between 20 and 30 French youths terrorised 600 passengers (systematic beatings, muggings and at least 2 sexual assaults were reported).
