Remember all that blather from France and elsewhere that the riots weren't organized and Muslim? More disinformation. The BBC reports:
Police investigating suspected plans for attacks in France have arrested at least 20 people during raids in and around Paris. They described the arrests as a ''major operation aimed at disbanding an Islamist network linked to terrorism''. Some of the suspects are believed to have been involved in crimes to help fund Islamic groups. The raids on homes and internet cafes were ordered by French anti—terrorism magistrates.
