PARIS (Reuters) - Violence broke out in poor suburbs of northeastern Paris for a ninth consecutive night as French youths set fire to cars and buildings despite a heavy police presence in riot-hit areas.

In another suburb, Epinay-sous-Bois, about 40 youths, wearing hoods to hide their faces, ransacked around 10 cars, police told a Reuters photographer. More Details
