French riot police clashed Tuesday with striking train workers, who hurled bottles and blocked traffic in anger over a bill to reform the state-run railway system. A weeklong strike by rail workers has caused some of the worst disruption to the country's rail network in years — and is heating up as the reform bill goes to the lower house of Parliament for debate Tuesday. The bill would pave the way to opening up the railways to competition, and opponents fear it will lead to job losses and safety problems.
