Air strike chaos grips France
Air strike chaos grips France


Thousands of flights have been cancelled and public transport disrupted in a mass walk-out by French air traffic controllers and other public sector workers.

The air traffic controllers' strike, which will stretch into Wednesday, has forced the cancellation of nearly 90% of international flights.

Thousands of people marched through Paris on Tuesday and smaller demonstrations were staged in a number of cities.

The mass protest has been called by unions angry at government moves towards privatisation, pension reforms and spending cuts.
