The north-east of the capital, in particular the Place de Stalingrad and its surroundings, is plagued by the crack trade, nicknamed “the drug of the poor”. The residents, exasperated by the presence of drug addicts, renamed this place “Stalincrack”.
At the beginning of May, two nights in a row, fireworks mortar fire targeted crack smokers, according to testimonies from residents.
