Tear gas in Paris, Istanbul as tensions erupt on May Day

PARIS: French and Turkish police fired tear gas at protesters as tensions erupted in both countries during May Day rallies Sunday, while thousands marched across the globe for the annual celebration of worker’s rights. From Moscow to Madrid, workers chanted demands for higher wages, better conditions and more job security as many countries battle economic uncertainty and high unemployment. In Paris, hundreds of black-clad riot police struggled to keep control of tens of thousands of protesters, with tensions high as youths in balaclavas and ski masks lobbed projectiles and shouted: “Everyone hates the police.”
