French Muslims Set Fire to Bus with Woman on It

PARIS (Reuters) - A woman in the southern city of Marseille suffered severe burns when vandals set fire to a bus she was traveling on, a police source said on Saturday.

Vandals have set at least six buses on fire in suburbs around Paris this week in an upsurge of violence ahead of the anniversary, but there have been no injuries.

The police source said an unknown number of people forced their way on to the bus in Marseille at about 9.00 p.m. (1900 GMT) and set fire to it before a 26-year-old woman could escape.

"The woman's life is in danger," the source said.

Three other people needed treatment for smoke inhalation.

After several attacks on security forces in French suburbs in recent weeks, police warned there was a danger that violence might again get out of control as last year.
