Hi everyone,
How would you say 'in a bid' relating to the above sentence?
Is there an equivalent or is it a case of re-wording?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions
Tom

    Thanks, the whole phrase is; 'curfews and almost 10,000 police are being used by the French government in a bid to end the rioting'
    *Is 'stopper' an anglicism? because I don't think I have ever come across it before?
    Thanks again :)

    ... dans la course pour stopper les émeutes.
    Le verbe stopper est utilisé depuis tellement longtemps, que je ne le qualifierais pas d'anglicisme.
