Return of the attack of French youths

The New York Times runs an AP story that features the return of the rowdy French youths whose identity otherwise eludes description:

A French police officer was shot and wounded during clashes with youths that broke out after a teenager was killed in a car crash while fleeing the police, the authorities said Tuesday.

The police used tear gas and rubber-coated pellets to push back about 50 people during clashes late Monday and early Tuesday.

In an effort to prevent a second night of violence, about 300 riot police officers and gendarmes took up positions around the center of Romans-sur-Isère, 60 miles east of Lyon in the Rhone Valley.

Developing, but probably not by the AP.
