France Rocks in Strike

More than 800,000 people had joined demonstrations in more than 100 cities across France, the interior ministry said. The CGT union said 1.5m people had turned out, including 250,000 in Paris.

The CGT also said workers had blocked seven of the country’s eight oil refineries, potentially causing fuel shortages if the strike continues.

In Paris, popular tourist sites including the Eiffel Tower, the Musée d’Orsay and the Palace of Versailles were shut for the day.
