Teens burn bus, injuring woman

From Times Wire Reports

France’s Interior minister sent riot police to patrol the southern port city of Marseille after a group of marauding teenagers torched a bus, gravely burning a young woman.

French police had braced for violence this weekend, the anniversary of last year’s riots in poor, largely immigrant neighborhoods.

On Saturday, 46 people were taken into custody, most of them in communities around Paris. The most serious violence was the bus attack in Marseille.
