    Stand down, PG. McDonald's burgers are not halal. Must be a lone wolf.

    They are halal in Malaysia - so I've heard.

    Want me to point out the errors in their version of the story?
    1. The cached version of their headline included "after a large device went off"
    2. The source they claim to have got some of the story from (before they added in their own speculation/fabrications etc that appeal to their type of reader, does not exist. They claim it is from "La Dauphine". No such media source exists. Maybe they mean "Le Dauphine", but that would imply that the mail has made a mistake. Must be the EU's fault for the fail not being able to spell.

    I wonder how long (if ever) they update the story to point out that all roads were reopened 2 hours after the explosion, traffic is flowing normally, and the security cordon is only around the building.

    The facts so far:
    1. There was a fire at a restaurant.
    It appears the fire started in a toilet. No mention of any device.
    2. After the fire started there was an explosion.
    Is it just at all slightly possible that maybe a restaurant where they cook food in fat and use gas to cook with, that maybe, I mean this is a long shot here, but, speculating, if there was a fire near gas, could that cause an explosion? Just throwing that out there as an idea.

    I blame the EU's open door policy of letting them in. Send them home. We don't want your stinking fast food outlets here.
