World Reaction to Bird Flu Threat
Paris Region Descending into Urban Chaos
At least New Orleans had the excuse of a major natural disaster. The French riots are ostensibly related to the deaths of two kids who thought they were being chased by police and chose to hide in an electrical substation. It seems as if they weren't actually being chased at all and entered the substation knowing it was unsafe, but that hasn't stopped the riots. Now the question is how the violence can be curbed without aggravating racial conflict even further.
