According to legal sources, one minor and two young adults were arrested 
in Aix-en-Provence and the Paris region Monday, accused of using the 
internet to incite people to riot and attack police.

The three blogs in question were hosted on the site owned by radio 
Skyrock, which deactivated them over the weekend.

“The sites were inciting people to participate in the urban violence and 
to attack police and police stations,” a parquet judge told Reuters in 

The parquet is supposed to decide today whether or not to open a 
judicial file, having decided that an investigation in necessary to 
ascertain the political connections of the accused as well as whether or 
not their activities were part of a broader organization.

The accused could face up to five years in prison if the charges of 
“inciting assault against individuals” is upheld.
