A fireman lost two fingers after a firebomb was thrown from the stands at a soccer match in Nice, France:

The Ligue 1 match between Nice and Olympique Marseille was suspended for five minutes after a fireman was hurt by a firebomb, security sources said on Sunday.

The match was interrupted while stewards in the Stade du Ray were trying to find the fireman’s fingers.

No Pasaran! has more on this disturbing trend.

Not even the new monument dedicated this past weekend could keep the firebombs out of the soccer matches in France.

Maybe if the French built a new memorial dedicated to the disenfranchised soccer fans this sort of thing would stop.

The monument at Clichy-sous-Bois College to honor Zyed Benna and Bouna Traore who died on Oct. 27, 2005 by accidental electrocution while fleeing a police identification check. (WPN)

ACLU?… AC-Le Feu?
What is this about?
