France: Tear gas and projectiles fly in Paris at rally against labour reforms

Clashes erupted at a student-led demonstration against labour reforms proposed by the French government in Paris on Thursday.
Riot police sprayed tear gas at protesters while leftist demonstrators hit back by throwing rocks and projectiles.
The government's far-reaching reforms will look at almost all aspects of France's labour laws; maximum working hours, holidays and breaks among other areas will be open to negotiation as the government attempts to liberalise France's labour market. French President Francois Hollande is said to be attempting to lower the country's unemployment rate below ten percent.
