French suburb, A No-Go Zone?

French suburb, a no-go zone?


Storyline

Last October, an unspeakably brutal aggression threw France into turmoil: some fifteen youngsters attacked two police cars with Molotov cocktails in the Grande Borne housing estate south of Paris. This incident is part of a series of violent aggressions that have punctuated the history of French suburbs for more than 30 years: riots, vendettas and police blunders. When the French presidential campaign was in full swing, some candidates qualified these suburbs as no-go zones". Report at the heart of this sensitive urban area.
