France pension protests: Clashes with police in Paris as protests continue

Hundreds of individuals demonstrated for a second evening in central Paris after President Emmanuel Macron determined to impose adjustments to the retirement age with no vote in parliament.

Some protesters clashed with riot police, who made a number of arrests.

The reform raises the French state retirement age by two years to 64, which Mr Macron says is important to keep up the viability of the French pension system. The change is fiercely opposed by the unions.
