France police killing: policeman refuses to shake president's hand

French President Francois Hollande has vowed to improve the protection of police officers, after a police couple was killed by a militant this week.

But during a ceremony to honour the victims, one policeman refused the shake hands with the president and his prime minister.

Interviewed on TF1 television afterwards, he said "There are too many problems in the police. We've had enough."
