French riots: Amiens buildings torched in clashes
Buildings and cars were torched overnight as youths and police clashed in the northern French city of Amiens.
Sixteen police officers were injured in the clashes with up to 100 youths, some of whom threw fireworks, large-sized shot and projectiles, say police.
Reports suggest the unrest may have been triggered after police arrested a man for dangerous driving.
