Moroccan fans attack a car with a French flag, in Montpellier, driver panics and runs them over

Moroccan soccer fans rioted across France Wednesday night as their team lost to France 2:0 in the World Cup. A 14-year old boy was killed in Montpellier when fans attacked a car with a French flag and the driver accelerated in panic to escape the mob.

The 14-year-old boy was pronouced dead in the hospital.

Videos documented the Moroccan fans running riot in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Montpellier, which is know for its leftist Mayor,   tolerance and large gay community (think French San Francisco).

Riot police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets. 25.000 police were deployed in France ahead of the World Cup game, since Moroccan fans have been rioting after every game throughout Europe for the last month. It still wasn’t enough to control the outburst, however.
