Two Italian cafés in Montreal have been firebombed.eerie hallmarks of the destructive biker wars in the 1990s

10:36 |

The latest incidents, which occurred early Monday morning, bring to eight the number of café-bars targeted since Oct. 28. Like the other incidents, there was little damage to the premises, but a lot of rattled nerves.
The Café Nouba on St. Laurent Blvd. in the heart of Little Italy, and the Café Vegas on Rue Jean Talon east, were both hit with Molotov cocktails, one at 6:18 a.m., the other at 7 a.m. As with the other firebombing attempts, the windows were broken and the flaming device thrown inside, only to quickly go out.
The owner of Café Vegas, who would not identify himself, told La Presse that his café does not have a problematic history. "I got no warning, and before this morning, nothing ever happened here. I have no idea who did this. It's a simple café where people come to play ... and drink."
It's the second time the Café Nouba has been targeted, the first time being Nov. 15.
Police have arrested no suspects and say they're trying to determine if the fire bombings are related. Police have also entertained the possibility that it could be a street gang trying to fill a vacuum left by biker gangs and the Mob, who have been severely weakened by successive police operations in recent years.
The incidents have the eerie hallmarks of the destructive biker wars in the 1990s when reprisal attacks, including arson, were common
