French soldier killed in combat in Iraq-Syria zone

French soldier killed in combat in Iraq-Syria zone”

The rally came a day after Macron signed his sweeping reforms into law, using a fast-track procedure to bypass a protracted parliamentary debate. The overhaul gives more flexibility to smaller business to negotiate their own terms with workers and makes it easier for companies to fire employees. Labor unions have called temporary strikes and hosted hundreds of rallies across the country.

"I told the prime minister of my concerns over this issue and my total inflexibility", Macron told reporters after meeting with Sipila.

Further demonstrations called by leaders of the various trade union federations are scheduled for the coming weeks.

"We won't let them empty the poor's pockets to feed the rich!"

In a warning to Macron, who has said he will not bow to street pressure, Melenchon said: "It is the street that defeated the kings, it is the street that defeated the Nazis", while the crowd chanted "Resistance!"

Fewer French voters are dissatisfied with Emmanuel Macron's performance, a poll showed on Sunday, halting a recent slide in the popularity ratings of the French president in recent months.

Some 45 percent expressed satisfaction with the centrist leader - up from 40 percent in August.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday told Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila of his "total inflexibility" to plans by telecoms giant Nokia to cut almost 600 jobs in France.
