A murder investigation has been launched after French rioters rammed a burning car into the home of the mayor of L’Haÿ-les-Roses, in an attack that is being described as an “assassination” attempt which saw his wife and one of his two children injured as they fled for their lives.
Local prosecutors have opened a murder investigation on Sunday after the home of Vincent Jeanbrun, mayor of L’Haÿ-les-Roses in the Paris suburb of Val-de-Marne was attacked by rioters with a flaming car.
While the mayor was not at home at the time of the attack, his wife was “seriously” injured and hospitalised, suffering a broken leg while trying to flee the violent mob. One of the couple’s children was also injured during the attack.
