Strasbourg, France (French Republic)
FRENCH FIREMEN ATTEMPT TO EXTINGUISH A BURNING CAR.
Firemen try to extinguish a burning car in Elsau, a suburb of Strasbourg January 1. Officials said that at least 33 cars were set on fire during New Year's eve in this poor suburb of the city. France greeted the millinnium with glittering shows of light and fireworks in Paris, but 600,000 French households were without electricity in other parts of the country because of storms earlier this week. vk/Photo by Vincent A.
