The Korean embassy in Paris has issued an official warning to its nationals to stay away from the suburb of St. Denis after a busload of Korean nationals were attacked, robbed, and assaulted by an African/Arab mob, while five large areas of France’s capital city have been turned into “no-go zones” by the ongoing nonwhite violence in France.
A spokesman for Seoul’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said: “These South Korean tourists had taken a bus after a visit to the Eiffel Tower and were on their way to Saint-Denis, the location of their hotel.
“Individuals suddenly boarded the coach and snatched the tourists’ Eurostar tickets, which were being kept by the tour guide, whose passport was also taken.”
The embassy added in a statement: “In the surrounding area of Saint Denis it is known that there are many accidents such as robbery, car-pinching, etc. at night.
“As a result, people visiting and staying in France should refrain from visiting the area around Saint-Denis.” They warned visitors not to go out at night and to report any suspicious activity.
Media reports say that the violence has already engulfed five large areas of Paris—Aulnay-Sous-Bois, Aulnay, Argenteuil, Bobigny and Tremblay-en-France in the Saint-Seine-Denis district—all of which have “been reduced to no go areas for the past five nights” as the nonwhites “cause mayhem on the streets.”
Residents have been on lockdown as armed police tried to tackle the rioters who have caused millions of euros damage.
French police have reported being attacked with Molotov cocktails and bats. A large number of vehicles have been torched, and after a social services wheelchair-equipped disability van was set on fire, police were forced to fire live rounds.
A reporter for the French TV company BMTV was also injured after being attacked, and in Bobigny, a van from the RTL news service was attacked and burned.
