Tear gas fills the air during clashes with French gendarmes during a demonstration in protest of the government's proposed labor law reforms in ParisBy Brian Love and Ingrid Melander PARIS (Reuters) - Protesters attacked a police station and smashed bank windows during anti-labour reform rallies in France on Thursday while the hardline CGT union sought to choke off fuel supplies in a showdown with a government that said it would not back down. Sixteen people were arrested in Paris where 18,000-19,000 marched according to police, far fewer than in the first protests against the labour law over the past three months. In the southwestern city of Bordeaux, about 100 people targeted a police station, throwing objects and damaging a police car.

This is an undated image released by CNRS on Wednesday May 25, 2016 of stone rings inside a cave on Bruniquel in France. Scientists say that a pair of mysterious stone rings found deep inside a French cave was probably built by Neanderthals about 176,500 years ago, proving that our ancient cousins were capable of more complex behavior than previously thought. The structures were made from hundreds of column-shaped mineral deposits, called stalagmites, that were chopped to a similar length and laid out in two oval patterns up to 40 centimeters (16 inches) inches high. (Michel Soulier/CNRS via AP)BERLIN (AP) — Two mysterious stone rings found deep inside a French cave were probably built by Neanderthals about 176,500 years ago, proving that the ancient cousins of humans were capable of more complex behavior than previously thought, scientists say.
