Three migrants from Africa were arrested in Paris after attacking a man, biting off his ear and bottom lip, and then consuming those pieces of the man’s flesh. The men, all from Cape Verde, were arrested shortly after the attack, as the victim was able to fend of his attackers to prevent worse.
The Clichy-sous-Bois area near Paris is heavily populated by immigrants, and gained notoriety after mass riots took place there in 2005, following the death of two teenagers who had been on the run from police and electrocuted themselves while trying to hide in a power station. This area, and other areas around Paris, have high crime rates and increasing radical islamic presence. Some parts are considered ‘no go zones’ (which don’t exist anywhere of course), where postal service Chronopost is no longer delivering mail or packages out of fear for their personnel’s safety.
