'Black vest' protesters storm Panthéon in Paris

Hundreds of undocumented migrants have stormed the Panthéon in Paris and demanded the right to remain in France.

The protesters, who were mainly from West Africa, surged into the building at around midday (11:00 GMT) on Friday.

Tourists were evacuated from the mausoleum, where many of France's most famous figures are buried.

The group called themselves the "black vests" - a reference to the yellow vest protest movement that spread through much of France earlier this year.
