As France cools down, Belgium heats up:

The Belgian government’s crisis centre confirmed on Tuesday night vandals had set cars ablaze in the cities of Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels.

It is the third night in succession that cars have been torched, but a spokesman for the national crisis centre said each case was an “isolated” incident.

Isolated incidents have also been observed in Australia:

The marked police car was 30 metres from the front entrance of Auburn police station when three men smashed the passenger window and threw a Molotov cocktail inside at 10.45pm AEDT yesterday, a police spokesman said.

Meanwhile, in Melbourne, pure bin-flaming horror:


Photographer Andrew R. writes: “This has happened within the last 24 hours. A public facility completely burnt out, left a shell, useless. In the centre of Melbourne. Near to where cars pass by, every now and then. In the World’s Most Comfortable-With-Itself City. What caused this? Has the French carnage spread to Melbourne? We live in worrying times.”
