Labour reform sparks violent student protests in France

High school students demonstrate against the government's proposed labour law reform on March 24, 2016 in Strasbourg, eastern FranceStudents protesting labour reforms took to the streets across France on Thursday, torching cars in Paris and clashing with riot police who responded with tear gas and made about two dozen arrests. Fifteen protesters were arrested in Paris, where two policemen were injured, and another nine students were detained in the western city of Nantes. The reforms, which had been significantly watered down under pressure from an earlier wave of protests, were adopted on Thursday by the cabinet of an increasingly unpopular President Francois Hollande, who hopes to stand for re-election next year.
