Pension strike cripples France

Services in Marseille, France’s top oil port, the world’s third-largest, have ground to a halt.

French Unions have launched another strike against pension reform – the fourth major action in a month.

It comes as the unpopular pension reform bill edges closer to becoming law.

Trains and airports are running well below capacity and marches are planned across the country.
