Update: The French press reported that the Interior Ministry released a final “verified” count of 1,147 vehicles burned in France over New Year’s Eve. The number is up 30.64% from last year’s total, 878.

Of course, no mention from Reuters of who exactly it is torching these cars. But my favorite bit from the article was this: “In Nantes, around 10 cars were torched although police in the western city said New Year’s Eve had been “pretty calm.’” Burning a mere ten cars in your French town is “pretty calm”? Oy.
