Violence in Paris Toned Down on 12th Night

Mind you toned down means that there weren't any more deaths.

PARIS, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Rioting for the 12th straight night in four regions of France left more than 1,100 vehicles torched and 330 people arrested overnight Monday. While Paris had its first relative lull with just 17 vehicles burned, riots broke out after dark in the southern city of Toulouse and the northern city of Lille, and two schools were torched in districts north of Paris -- Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Picardie.

Yet again, the paragon of liberal values shows the rest of the world how to compassionatly govern its people.
