Excerpt from the article - "Leaders of the hardline parties of the Right called for tougher action against gangs that have made no-go areas out of the North African-dominated estates on the outskirts of cities. President Chirac and M Jospin have made crime the leading issue as they campaign for support before their expected contest for the presidency in elections next April. A rash of statistics and media reporting has increased the sense that the country is suffering a crime wave, especially in Paris and the big southern cities. Paris reported a 41 per cent rise in muggings and other robberies with violence in the first six months of this year. In July M Chirac blamed the Government for being soft on crime, saying: “The French are afraid. We have reached a point which is intolerable.” I, for one, am glad to see that the United States is not the only country in the world that's having a problem with immigration!
