France braced for strike chaos

A one-day strike is expected to cause widespread transport disruption in France today, with reduced services on trains and the Paris underground system and delays to flights.
On average, just two-thirds of Paris buses and Metro trains are expected to run on what the daily Le Parisien newspaper predicted would be a 'Black Tuesday'.

The strike over the centre-right government's economic and labour policies presented another test for prime minister Dominique de Villepin, following union unrest on the island of Corsica last week over a planned ferry privatisation.
