What kind of youths have been rioting in Copenhagen for the last five days?

Well, the news story doesn't say, but Chief Inspector Henrik Olesen of the Copenhagen police told AFP that it's because they're "bored".

"We don't know why they're rioting. I think it's because they're bored. Some people say it's because of the cartoons but that's not my opinion," Olesen said.

oop, sorry?

What was that about cartoons?

Well, we don't find out the identity of the youffs before the AFP story goes off on some unintelligible and inexplicable tangent about the Middle East and Hamas and a couple of Tunisians plotting to kill some cartoonist...

I don't know what these Danish journalists are smoking lately, but I wish they'd stick with the story.
