Officers injured in clashes with French youths

French authorities say youths hurled Molotov cocktails and rocks at police and firefighters in anger over the death of a young man fleeing police. Four people were injured.
The police headquarters for the Var region in southeastern France reported the injuries among police and firefighters after clashes in the housing project in the town of Frejus late Monday.
It was the second night of violence in the housing project, prompted after a 21-year-old man on a motorcycle crashed and died.
In 2005, violence between youths and law enforcement spread across suburban housing projects around France, after two teenage boys were electrocuted in a power substation while hiding from police.
