WATCH: Paris Bus Firebombed By Gang Shouting ‘Allah Akbar’

Paris Bus Firebomb Saint-Denis

A group of men in the Saint-Denis district of Paris trapped a passenger bus on the early morning of July 28th, 2016 and firebombed the entire vehicle. Thankfully the group of men who can be heard yelling “Allah Akbar” evacuated the bus of five passengers and the driver before smashing the windows and throwing Molotov cocktails into the bus.

There are conflicting reports about the people who are actually responsible for the attack, but Mayor Didier Paillard denounced the act as “an act of vandalism” and “premeditated.” He did not call the crime an act of terrorism.

Paris has had a lengthy history of public unrest, even before the rising number of ISIS attacks this year. It could very well be that the gang members shouted “Allah Akbar” to throw the police off their trail, or even just to have some sick fun. The truth is that there had been several nights of unrest after the death of black Adama Traore, who many believed died at the hands of Paris police.
