Korean Tourists Slapped, Robbed and Threatened in Migrant Suburb in Paris During Traffic Jam
Rioters torched several cars and damaged buses in Seine Saint Denis this week.
The Korean embassy has warned against visiting the migrant suburb of Seine Saint Denis after tourists were slapped, robbed and threatened this week by migrants.
The Korean embassy has warned against visiting the migrant-dominated Paris region of Seine-Saint-Denis after thugs terrorised a coach of tourists.
A group of around forty South Korean tourists were ‘slapped’, threatened, and robbed by five men who climbed aboard their coach as it was stuck in traffic near Bobigny, where anti-police riots were taking place.
The intruders first “slapped” some of the passengers, then proceeded to loot the vehicle, stealing “all valuables: blue cards, cash and even Eurostar train tickets” before finally attempting to set fire to the coach as they left the vehicle, Le Parisien reported on Tuesday.
According to the Korean embassy in Paris, the perpetrators shouted as they boarded the coach, and then threatened tourists with what is believed to have been a glass bottle, which they also used to “tap” the heads of passengers sitting towards the front of the vehicle.
