Vandals threw three firebombs at a mosque in France's Loire region, causing minor damage, a police spokesman said Tuesday. The attack happened late early Tuesday in the eastern town of Saint-Chamond, a spokesman for the national police said. The number of cars set on fire across France dropped dramatically overnight, with youths setting fire to 162 vehicles by 4 a.m. (0300GMT), compared to 271 at the same time a day earlier, a police spokesman said early Tuesday. Most of the violence overnight was in the provinces outside of Paris where 115 cars were burned, compared to 209 the previous night, the national police said. In the Paris region, 47 cars were burned compared to 62 the night before.
