France: Heavy clashes mar health workers' protest in Paris

Protesters clashed with riot police in Paris on Tuesday, during an unauthorised rally of health care workers demanding better working conditions. The riot police were filmed attempting to apprehend a protester while being under a barrage of rocks and bottles, hurled by the protesters close to Esplanade des Invalides. Clashes also broke out on Robert Esnault-Pelterie street. Similar unauthorised protests were expected across the country as part of a nationwide movement denouncing the lack of equipment in hospitals and stagnant wages. Last month, French Prime Minister Edouard Phillipe announced that the government will hold a 'public consultation' on health service reform.
