Двое уроженцев Чечни избили во французском городе Ницца полицейского, который сделал им замечание.
Инцидент произошел вечером 27 августа. Служитель правопорядка в штатском сделал замечание молодым людям, которые толкались в очереди в табачный киоск. Те в ответ повалили офицера на землю и начали бить его ногами.
Подоспевшие коллеги полицейского сумели остановить избиение и арестовали преступников.
Стоит отметить, что это уже не первый инцидент с участием выходцев из Чечни во Франции. По данным ряда СМИ, во французских провинциях стали достаточно обычными конфликты кавказцев с североафриканцами. По некоторым сведениям, конфликт часто выходит на улицы - участники беспорядков сжигают машины представителей другой этнической общины и устраивают драки с применением холодного оружия, отмечает радиостанция.
