Youths threw stones from an overhead bridge onto a tramway, breaking the windshield and injuring the conductor, whose face was cut by splintered glass, police said Monday. The Sunday incident in Grenoble, followed a bus attack a night earlier in Marseille in which youths tossed a bottle of flammable liquid into the vehicle, seriously burning a 26-year-old woman. Authorities concluded that the three weeks of violence that erupted Oct. 27, 2005, reflected decades of discrimination against poor youths of immigrant origin living in housing projects that ring French cities.
