Several bottles of burning alcohol were thrown at a police station in the norther districts of Marseilles tonight, causing "relatively light" damage, according to a source close to the inquiry.

The public building, headquarters of the police in the 3rd arrondissement of the town, is located in one of the most sensitive urban areas in Marseilles, the Felix-Pyat estate, at the heart of the zone de sécurité prioritaire (ZSP) [Priority Safety Zone] of the northern districts.

At 11 pm here, seven molotov cocktails as well as rocks struck the police building that shelters several Public Safety units, causing uproar among the staff present. "It's probably the arrest in the afternoon of two inhabitants of the estate that provoked the anger of the 'jeunes'."

Numerous patrols that were carried out in the night around "Fort Chabrol", the local nickname for the police station, did not allow any arrests to be made. The investigators must now look at CCTV recordings to try and identify the perpetrators of this attack.

The building is regularly the target of malevolent acts; in July 2009 a grenade was thrown against its railings. Six police vehicles were damaged and numerous impacts were discovered even including on the picture window of the nursery school that adjoins the police station.

"Throwing molotov cocktails at a police station is a serious act and should not be treated as something banal," said the deputy area delegate of the Alliance trade union this morning. "Already on Thursday afternoon, there were scuffles with the forces of order and some of our colleagues were injured. Obviously some petits caïds ["little bosses", the word caïd is of Algerian origin] do not accept that the services of the state do their work in this much degraded housing estate," said the local official.

I'm beginning to come around to the conclusion that you're perfectly right about the jews:

Then again, he does attack Mark Steyn who I have a lot of respect for.
