Police use tear gas on demonstrators in central Paris

PARIS (Reuters) - French police fired tear gas at demonstrators in central Paris on Tuesday and projectiles were thrown at police lines, a Reuters reporter at the scene said.

The clashes broke out near the Nation square in eastern Paris during a demonstration, organised by trade unions, to demand that President Emmanuel Macron abandon a planned reform of the state pension system.
