The clashes erupted on Saturday evening around 8 pm, regional daily La Provence reported. Some sixty young people from immigrant housing estates, accompanied by ultra-left activists, targeted the Marseille police station located in the 2nd arrondissement.
According to the details of the regional daily, the individuals threw firecrackers and chanted: “Assassins!” when faced with police officers. Given the threat, the officers called in reinforcements.
Crews from the Security and Intervention Company (CSI) and the Anti-Crime Brigade (BAC) intervened to prevent the situation from escalating.
The group of individuals demanded the release of the two robbers, in police custody since Friday evening. A third robber from the same store, 19, was killed in a chase with BAC Nord.
“Under conditions that the investigations will specify, a police officer opened fire several times after being himself, then one of his colleagues, threatened by one of the criminals armed with a rifle,” said the prosecution. The armed individual was fatally neutralized by police fire. The sixty young people were finally pushed back without further incidents.
Meanwhile crime and delinquency in the Ile-de-France has exploded with “nearly 40 percent of respondents” in the agglomeration “of foreign nationality”.
Faced with rampant delinquency, the services are mobilizing to catch the perpetrators as the share of foreigners implicated in crime has literally exploded in Paris.
In general, in all types of crimes and misdemeanors combined, “almost 40percent of those implicated” in the Paris agglomeration are “of foreign nationality” either clandestine or in a regular situation, revealed a report in French daily Le Figaro.
This is twice as much as elsewhere in France, in the police zone, where foreigners are 20 percent of the accused.
The proportion is even 47,6 percent in Paris intra-muros, or one in two criminals. The ratio is 12,5 percent in the North, 27,4 percent in that of the Rhône and 22,3 percent in that of the Bouches-du-Rhône.
In addition, the proportion of unaccompanied foreign minors has continued to increase, reaching 21,6 percent currently and even 22,7 percent in Paris, compared to 19 percent in the provinces.
