99 vehicles were set on fire in the migrant-heavy Paris suburb of Saint Denis last night while clashes with police were also reported.
The Intelligence Fusion Twitter account posted a map which stated that, “In addition to 99 cars being set on fire, nine bonfires were also identified.”
Setting cars on fire has become a “tradition” for migrant youths who routinely set vehicles ablaze on New Year’s Eve.
Located just 6 miles from the Eiffel Tower, Saint Denis is home to no less than 400,000 illegal immigrants. Out of the suburb’s 1.5 million population, 600,000 are Muslims from North Africa or sub-Saharan Africa and there are at least 160 mosques.
