Fuel supply to Paris airports cut amid strikes

The fuel pipeline to Paris's main airports has been shut off amid strikes over government pension reforms.

The company that operates the pipeline told French media that the capital' s main airport, Charles de Gaulle, could run out of fuel as early as next week.

There are fears of fuel shortages as all of France's 12 oil refineries have been hit by strikes, and many oil depots remain blockaded.
