From Morning Report, 6:36 am on 11 April 2016

Protests in France turned violent over the weekend, with at least seven police officers injured and 17 people arrested. French media reported some 200 demonstrations across the country. The protests were sparked by proposed changes to labour laws, but now cover a range of issues, including the Panama Papers and anger that state of emergency imposed after the Paris attacks remains in effect.
