Algerian film draws French outrage

French war veterans and right-wingers protest Cannes film on Algerian independence struggle.

    Hundreds of people at the French film festival in Cannes have protested against a movie about Algeria's struggle for independence from France.

    Demonstrators, who included right-wing politicians and French war veterans, say the film is biased.

    Algeria gained independence from France after an eight-year war that ended in 1962.
