French cops fire tear gas and charge protesters as tens of thousands take to the streets to fight President Macron's pension reforms

French cops launched tear gas cannisters and charged protesters as tens of thousands of workers took to Paris streets to rally against the government's plan to raise the retirement age to 64.

Clashes broke out near the Nation square in eastern Paris during a demonstration, organised by trade unions, to demand that President Emmanuel Macron abandon his reforms.

Witnesses said police charged a group of protesters who ignored an ultimatum to disperse and were throwing Molotov cocktails.
