Cars, warehouse burn in French niqab riot town
A warehouse was ablaze near the riot-hit French town of Trappes on Sunday after a second night of clashes between police and youths protesting over the allegedly brutal arrest of a woman wearing Islamic face cover.
Thick black smoke issued from the former furniture warehouse, which has been empty for two or three months according to Trappes mayor Guy Malandain, as firefighters battled the blaze midday Sunday.
The origin of the fire has not yet been established.
