French police clash with protesting firefighters

Feb 02, 2020 17:10 IST

Scuffles broke out in Paris on Tuesday as the French police fired a water cannon at angry firefighters demonstrating in the city for better working conditions. Unions organised the protest in Paris on behalf of fire service workers across the country. The protesting firefighters set off firecrackers in one of the city's main squares to bring attention to their cause while others tried to tear down fencing. They are demanding an increase in risk pay from 19% to 25%.
