Tensions Flare Anew Between Asians, Whites

June 25, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Riot police restored calm to the town of Burnley in northwestern England early today after a flare-up of racial tensions between whites and Asians. Several cars and two buildings were set on fire.

The police, backed by a helicopter, were deployed to keep groups of white and Asian youths apart in the town, 20 miles northwest of Oldham--scene last month of Britain's worst race riots in a decade.
