Trazirat e fundit në Francë
Në Francë është vënë re ulje tensioni pas trazirave të fundit. Plani i qeverisë për emergjencat po vihet në zbatim gjë që mundëson shpalljen e gjendjes së emergjencës për zona të veçanta. Alasdair Sandford njofton:
Fewer cars were torched around the country on Tuesday night - just over six hundred - but there were many arrests, according to a spokesman for the Interior Minister. The Paris area was relatively calm but there was trouble in cities like Toulouse and Lyon. The government's emergency decree allowing for widespread new police powers is now in force. Many cities may now impose curfews if the authorities see fit.
The far right leader of the National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen, has told the BBC the violence is the consequence of large scale immigration. He's called for troublemakers to have their French nationality withdrawn. The French international footballer, Lilian Thuram, in Martinique where he's due to play for his country later on Wednesday, has criticised the Interior Minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, for describing some people on troubled housing estates as scum.
