A wave of arson attacks in Paris' restive suburbs, including hundreds of cars that were torched, punctured what authorities said Friday was otherwise the first night of relative calm after a week of clashes between riot police and angry youths. The Interior Ministry issued a statement saying that 420 cars burned overnight, an increase from previous nights, officials said. But there were fewer direct clashes with riot police deployed across the suburbs north of the French capital. The unrest started Oct. 27 when angry youths took to the streets over the deaths of two teenagers - Bouna Traore, 15, and Zyed Benna, 17 - electrocuted in a power substation where they hid thinking they were being chased by police.
