Rioting in Grenoble, France

There has been rioting in the Grenoble suburb of La Villeneuve over the weekend. The unrest started Friday night when a suspect in an armed robbery of a casino was killed in a gunfight with local police. Over eighty cars were torched in the aftermath of the shooting during two nights of rioting. See this article in Deutsche Welle for more details on this story.

It appears that the riots are waning. However, we advise travelers who may be headed for Grenoble, located at the foot of the French Alps, to delay their travel until next week, if possible.
