Paris Terror

2006/08/12

Neuilly-sur-Seine, Paris, France
Friday, August 11, 2006

In near simultaneous explosions two bombs heavily damaged two health care facilities in Neuilly-sur-Seine, part of the Parisian banlieu. It was hoped and feared that this was another case of Helvetian cooking gone awry, however the bombings were claimed by Lou Parti di Biou, the militant arm of the Ligue Bourgignonne. Most heavily damaged was the Hospital Américain on the Boulevard Victor Hugo. Windows in the Rue Chauveau were blown out by the explosion.

This is the third in such bombings, part of a campaign by Lou Parti di Biou to secure independence of Grand-Burgundy, a separate country. In recent years there has been an upsurge of regional pride, resulting in a resurrection of the Burgundian trilled “r”, heretofore maintained only in Louisianne and moribund in Bourgogne itself.

Other attacks have targeted banks and metro lines. Police are on high alert in Paris and across the country.
