France: Clashes in Paris As Firefighters and Police Face off

Tension erupted as police forces and firefighters clashed on a day of mass protests in Paris, on Tuesday.

Scuffles broke out when police reportedly fired water cannons at firefighters who had rallied in the French capital to demand better working conditions and a pay raise. Footage filmed on Tuesday shows police beating the firefighters with sticks and using what it appeared to be pepper spray.

Firefighters are demanding an increase from 19 per cent to 25 per cent in their ‘risk pay’, as they claim staff shortages have been making their job more difficult.

A previous protest held by French firefighters in October was marred by clashes with police in Paris and in the southern city of Dijon.
