(News) Rioting in France Spreads to Other Cities - including Rouen :(

The rioting in Paris has now spread into other cities around France, including Rouen which is the city closest to Delphine and her family and the one I have spent the most time in outside of Paris itself. I'm not surprised that the unrest has kicked off as the French suburbs have been a powderkeg waiting to go off for many years, but I hope it manages to get resolved without any deaths or too many injuries.
