Up to 30 police officers were injured Monday in a second night of clashes with youths in the flashpoint Paris suburb of Villiers-le-Bel, police sources said.
One police source told AFP on condition of anonymity that a total of 30 officers had been injured — while a second source put the number at 26.
The severity of the injuries was not specified.
Earlier Monday a French judge ordered a manslaughter inquiry into the death of two teenagers in a crash with a police car on Sunday which sparked the riots.
Sunday’s violence, France’s worst since nationwide riots in Paris suburbs in 2005, had already prompted President Nicolas Sarkozy to appeal for calm.
