    Immigrant Gang Terrorizes French Train

    Gang terrorizes train in France

    By Marc Burleigh
    AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE
    January 5, 2006


    PARIS -- A gang of more than 20 youths -- thought to be North African immigrants -- terrorized hundreds of train passengers in a rampage of violence, robbery and sexual assault on New Year's Day, French officials said yesterday.

    The five-hour-long criminal frenzy was "totally unacceptable," French President Jacques Chirac told reporters. "Those guilty will be found and punished, as they deserve."

    The gang of between 20 and 30 youths boarded the train, heading from Nice on the French Riviera to Lyon, in eastern France, early on Jan. 1, as it carried 600 passengers home from New Year's Eve partying overnight.

    Once inside, they went wild, forcing passengers to hand over mobile phones and wallets, and slashing seats and breaking windows.

    A 20-year-old woman cornered by several of the marauders was sexually molested.

    "It was a real scene of pillage on the train," said the regional state prosecutor, Dominique Luigi, adding that the passengers were in a state of "panic."

    Train staff alerted police, and the train pulled into a station to wait. The three officers who initially turned up later were joined by reinforcements.
    A waitress in a bar near the station said two young women from the train had come inside in tears.

    "They told me there had been groping. They talked about sexual assaults. They were really traumatized," she said.

    The train resumed its journey with the heavy police presence on board but, just before Marseille, the youths pulled the emergency stop and many escaped.

    Only three -- two 19-year-old Moroccans and a minor, all living in France -- were arrested. Both men were being held for robbery and one also was facing charges of sexual assault. The minor was to be judged separately.

    Three others -- a man and two boys -- were arrested briefly in Marseille but were released despite reports they were carrying a knife, a screwdriver and a small amount of hashish.

    Police in Nice, meanwhile, said they had escorted the group of drunken youths and put them on the train Sunday to ensure they did not cause trouble in the city.

    Police said they thought the gang was part of a bigger group of 100 youths from the Marseille area who had gone to Nice and nearby seaside resorts for New Year's Eve, taking advantage of a special $1 New Year's Day train fare.

    News of the violence shocked France, which still was reeling from three weeks of rioting that flared in impoverished suburbs across the country in late October and early November last year.

    The opposition Socialist Party said it viewed the incident with "astonishment."

    It said "such acts show a worrying lack of security" and questioned why it took so long for police to rescue the passengers and why so few arrests were made.

    Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy, who has championed hard-line security policies in France, partly blamed the state rail company SNCF for not communicating better with the police.

    "The problem is that law-enforcement services didn't know that there was a promotional fare going," he said.

    600 people should have been able to run them over. But who knows maybe they had guns or most of the passengers were non-whites and didn’t want to disturb their buddies?

    Well, there are what, 60 people at most in one single car? And if the predators move in a pack, there certainly won't be much resistance.

    Especially not when most Euros have been programmed into a state of bovine indifference.
