Corsica protest
A crowd vandalised a Muslim prayer room in Corsica a day after an ambush left firefighters injured on the French island. The region's top police official was on the tense scene at a housing project last evening.
The violence began Thursday night, when firefighters responding to an emergency call were ambushed in Ajaccio, according to the local France 3television. Yesterday a gathering that started as a show of support for the injured emergency officials turned violent, and some in the crowd vandalised a prayer room. France 3 reported new police reinforcements at other prayer rooms.
