PARIS (Reuters) – French industrial output fell more than expected in June, according to data published on Friday, adding to signals of contraction across the euro zone economy.

The INSEE statistics office said industrial output in the euro zone’s second biggest economy fell 2.3%, compared with a 2.0% rise in May.

Twenty-two analysts polled by Reuters had forecast a 1.4% decline in June.
