France strikes 'biggest so far'

Unions and police say Tuesday's protests in Paris are the biggest so far, estimating a turnout of 330,000 and 89,000 respectively, with some unions due to vote on whether to escalate their protests with open-ended strikes.
France's cabinet wants to raise the minimum retirement age from 60 to 62.
