November 6, 2005 00:56

Youths armed with gasoline bombs fanned out from Paris' poor, troubled suburbs to shatter the tranquility of leafier towns, torching scores of vehicles, nursery schools and other targets around France in the 10th night of violence Saturday night. Five classrooms of the Sleeping Beauty Nursery School in Grigny, in the Essonne region south of Paris, went up in flames as well as two classrooms of another school, police said. Some 900 hundred vehicles had been torched the previous night in the worst wave of arson since the urban violence began.
