* *French police break up protest outside oil refinery*

French police began breaking up union protests outside the oil refinery at Fos-sur-Mer in the south of France early on Tuesday morning (May 24).
Workers have been blockading the oil works and petrol stations as part of nationwide protests against government labour reforms.
