French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has formed a new cabinet after the government fell on Monday following a row with Economy Minister Arnaud Montebourg.

Mr Montebourg resigned - along with two other ministers from the left - and will be replaced by Emmanuel Macron, a former Rothschild banker and ex-presidential economic adviser.

With the crisis meaning more misery for struggling President Francois Hollande, BBC News outlines France's malaise - in 60 seconds.
