Africans in Paris left on the street

Reuters, via the Pakistani newspaper DAWN reports that some African squatters in Paris have refused to leave the streets after being evicted from their homes following several fatal fires. But the fires were not set by the squatters and they are now left with no place to live. "We are the ones who get up in the mornings to work in buildings," one squatter told the news agency. "It's African women cleaning up the mess of politicians in their offices in the morning. And at night, we come back to our derelict homes."
