France: Fires on streets of Cergy ahead of Bastille Day

Fires were set on the streets of Cergy, a town in the northwestern suburbs of Paris, in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Footage filmed on Avenue du Terroir shows people setting bins and other objects ablaze, while other fires were reportedly being set around the capital. The incident took place ahead of Bastille Day, which has been often associated with acts of social disobedience in the past. July 14 marks the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, a turning point in the French Revolution.
