    Protests in France escalate

    Today's Guardian reports on the ongoing protests in France, some rather disturbing:

    Mr de Villepin is now embattled on all fronts over his controversial "first employment contract", known as the CPE. Mr Sarkozy has distanced himself this week, suggesting there should be a six-month trial period for the law, which would make it easier for employers to sack workers under 26. The government says such flexibility will encourage companies to hire young people and slash unemployment. The daily Le Parisien yesterday quoted an unnamed political source close to the president, Jacques Chirac, saying that if the controversy did not subside Mr de Villepin could be sacked.
