Nine public sector unions are engaged in a one-day strike to protest Emmanuel Macron's labor reforms. Schools, hospitals and transport are being affected.
Truckers blocked roads across France while radical groups brawled with the police, kicking off the week of protests against government's labor reform. President Hollande said he would "not back down" on the bill.
French authorities have accused "violent groups" of exploiting large protests against its plans to reform labor laws. Some 150 people have been detained, including 27 arrested overnight at Paris' Place de la Republique.
