An accidental start of fire, in the middle of the night, several hours after stopping use of the machine seems “unbelievable” but “checks are necessary”, estimates a Source close to the matter.

In recent months, several actions by activists, particularly against the construction of the A69, the highway between Castres and Toulouse, have resulted in the destruction of vehicles. Until now, the construction site of the third line of the Toulouse metro has not been targeted by members of the radical environmentalist movement.
