France warns citizens of danger in riot-hit London

9th August 2011, Comments 0 comments

France warned the hundreds of thousands of its citizens living in Britain to be "extremely" careful when moving about London and other cities engulfed by rioting.

The foreign ministry's website urged "extreme caution" if venturing out at night and said French men and women living or on holiday in Britain should at all costs avoid the "mobs" that have been forming in city centres.

British Prime Minister David Cameron recalled parliament on Tuesday and ordered thousands of extra police onto the streets after Britain's worst rioting in decades left parts of London and other cities in flames.
