Woman Seriously Burned In Marseilles
I was wondering how long before someone was burned in these bus attacks. According to France3 the inevitable happened at around 9:00 P.M. Saturday night, in Marseilles:
A 26-year-old woman was burned over 60% of her body, according to the Hospital of the Conception in Marseilles where the unconscious victim was taken. Three other passengers were treated for minor smoke inhalation.
Adolescents set fire to the bus using an inflammable liquid, according to police sources.
Around 9:00 P.M. three teens, according to passengers' testimony, got on the bus by forcing the doors and poured the incendiary liquid.
The attack took place in the 13th "arrondissement" of Marseilles, a district out of the center of town and "not particularly affected by acts of civil disobedience," according to the firemen.
The bus left the downtown area en route for the northern neighborhoods, known to be more troublesome. The prosecutors for the city of Marseilles visited the scene and turned the investigation over to the criminal brigade of the Marseilles judiciary police, "considering the gravity of the act," according to a police source.
