Rampaging youths threw Molotov cocktails and set fire to cars in a troubled neighborhood outside Paris on Monday, the second night of street violence after two local teens were killed in a crash with a police patrol car.

Officials cast doubt on the claim but the internal police oversight agency was investigating nevertheless.
