Violence and killing after Algeria won an African soccer tournament (in which France was not participating). How is that mass migration from Muslim lands working out M. Macron?
I am sure Macron will round up anyone who writes or posts on social media about it.
France chaos: Rioting and looting after Algeria’s Africa Cup victory – shocking video
RIOTS erupted in southern France on Thursday evening after Algeria beat Ivory Coast in the African Cup of Nations.
By Darren Hunt, The Express, Jul 12, 2019:
Parts of southern France descended into chaos on Thursday evening after Algeria beat Ivory Coast in the African Cup of Nations. One football supporter ran over a family, killing a woman, and seriously injuring her baby, as fans celebrated Algeria’s victory. In the video, pandemonium erupted on the streets of France, with flares let off in Paris which brought traffic to a standstill.
Some footage shows children running away from the chaos with their parents as the victory was celebrated.
France’s Interior Minister Christophe Castaner on Friday condemned the football-related violence as being “absolutely unacceptable”.
He wrote on Twitter: “The damage and incidents committed last night on the sidelines of #CAN2019 celebrations are unacceptable.
“I salute the action of our forces mobilized in Paris and throughout the territory to maintain order and contain overflows. 43 people were arrested.”
