"The center cannot hold"

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed

Hundreds of angry youths rioted in a Paris suburb early on Thursday, setting fire to cars and shop fronts, after two of their peers were electrocuted while fleeing police.

The rampage in Clichy-sous-Bois, northeast of Paris, started with an attack on firefighters called in to help the two youths, who died after seeking cover next to an electrical transformer. A third youth suffered serious burns.

Crowds of rioters hurled stones at the firefighters then rioted through the streets until early morning, leaving a trail of charred destruction as they set fire to cars, garbage cans and buildings.
