Paris is NOT burning!

The situation in France has been bad enough for the last 10 fays, there is no need to make it look worse than it is by using Apocalyptic titles like "Paris is Burning" which has been around the American media.

No, Paris is NOT burning. There were about 20 cars set on fire last night (in the 3rd and 17th disctrict) in the city itself but those were isolated incidents and most of the incidents happen far from the center. There are too much police in downtown Paris for things to get bad. In any case, the Paris known to tourists is certainly NOT burning.

Besides, until now, no one has been killed since the beginning of the riots and arsons. The Los Angeles riots of 1992, by contrast claimed the lives of more than 50 people.
