Text size Aa Aa

Demonstrators angry about France’s pension reforms have clashed with riot police in Paris.

Saturday’s protests across the country were largely peaceful but scuffles broke out in the capital later in the evening in the Place de la Bastille.

Officers made 30 arrests after they were pelted with missiles and attacked by hooded youths.

The violence is being blamed on left-wing extremists.
