frPeople walk their dogs past the burnt school in Gennevilliers, outside Paris

A SCHOOL erupted in flames in the Paris suburbs as rioting over coronavirus confinement continued across France and other spots in the world.

Fireworks are thought to have started the blaze in the early hours in Gennevilliers, which is less than the eight miles from the centre of the French capital, amid growing tension over the Covid-19 lockdown.


It comes as public unrest has been breaking out across the world by frustrated people demanding an end to the coronavirus stay-at-home measures.

This includes Russia, Germany, Brazil, the United States and India. 

In France there were also reports of gangs fighting police in other major cities including Bordeaux, Lyon, Strasbourg, and Toulouse. 

Most of the affected areas are what are know as "banlieues" — high-rise, low-income neighbourhoods that encircle many of its cities.


A police spokesman for the Paris suburb of Gennevilliers said: "The Paul-Langevin primary school came under attack, with the head teacher’s office destroyed, along with two other teachers’ rooms.

"An investigation into the attack is underway into the fire, which was initially caused by fireworks."

Tensions have escalated over the alleged racist treatment of ethnic minorities during the coronavirus lockdown, and there has been rioting since Sunday. 

It followed France’s intelligence services warning of unrest resulting from the pressure of confinement. 

Some of the worst violence has been in the northern Paris suburb of Villeneuve-la-Garenne, where fireworks have been fired horizontally and from high rise flats at riot police, and at their vehicles.

  • Take a look at France for a preview of life in America very shortly. If these politically motivated democrat governors don’t wake up soon, we will have this virus and an insurrection to deal with. If these idiots think they can keep all of America under house arrest for the entire summer, they are in for a rude awakening. A great many of the citizens of our country are reaching the boiling point. More and more evidence of this overblown pandemic is beginning to come to light. Our people are now beginning to see the extent of the damage that’s already been done.

    The realization that the democrats are willing and eager to sacrifice the lives and livelihood of millions of Americans is mind-boggling. Justifying their actions because they hate Donald Trump makes them all less than human. They hold aid to small business hostage to not only to get funding for their socialist agenda but also to ensure that many small businesses will fail.

    In another post, I wrote that America is standing at the gateway to Hell and the door is opening. I certainly hope the patriots in our country will see this situation for what it really is before it’s too late.
