Fransk borgerkrig på trapperne 1: Marseille borgmester ønsker hæren sat ind - Telegraph
Marseille mayor calls for army to be deployed to tackle gang warfare François Hollande on Thursday faced calls from the Socialist mayor of a tough Marseille neighbourhood to send in the army to tackle the city's gang warfare. ... "Faced with the weapons of war being used by these networks, only the army can intervene," Miss Ghali, also a senator, told local newspaper La Provence. She said that the army should set up roadblocks around neighbourhoods to vet inhabitants for weapons and drugs "like in times of war". "It no longer makes any difference to send in a police car to stop the dealers. When 10 of them are arrested, 10 others take up the torch. It's like fighting an anthill."
