French reveal loathing for 'violent' suburban youth
by Clea Caulcutt
Nearly 60 percent of the French say they distrust youth from the 'banlieues', France's impoverished, immigrant-dominated suburbs, according to a new survey that has laid bare the country's divisions.
"The results are extremely worrying," Thibault Renaudin, national secretary of Afev, the youth organisation which published the poll, told The Local.
"Youths from the banlieues already suffer from discrimination, unemployment, and this suspicion just adds their difficulties."
