Two buses were torched Friday evening in the infamous Nine-Three (Seine Saint Denis) in the town of Blanc-Mesnil. Most bus service in the Seine Saint Denis has been discontinued and will not resume before Saturday morning at the earliest. This will certainly impact the many Seine Saint Denis residents who return home from work in Paris on Friday night.
2 hooded individuals (one was carrying a pistol) boarded a bus in Blanc-Mesnil which was transporting around 15 passengers. The passengers and the driver were ordered out of the bus which was then driven by the assailants through a guardrail. The bus was then torched. A second bus was torched at the scene.
