Excerpt:

For safety reasons, the Post Office is no longer distributing packages in the Saint-Louis de Carrières-sous-Poissy (Paris) district. The inhabitants are forced to go to the main post office. There is indignation in front of the Carrières-sous-Poissy post office. Long queues have been forming each day for two weeks on the pavement at the door to the office in the centre of town. The phenomenon originated with the suspension of packages and registered letters in the Saint-Louis district.

"We have been victims of the theft of scooters and of mail," she specifies. "We want to protect the workers and the letters."

Others have had part of the contents of their sack stolen.
