France Claims ‘No Incident’ After 1000 Cars Torched on New Years Eve | Liam Deacon

French authorities have been accused of a cover-up after claiming New Year’s Eve “went off without any major incident” despite more than 1,000 cars being torched in arson attacks.

Police also arrested 454 people during the night, 301 of whom were taken into custody.

The phenomenon of torching cars at the end of the year is a “tradition” in France, with different departments and suburbs of the capital, Paris, competing to cause the most destruction.
