France's Hollande slams 'scandalous' clashes at Paris climate talks

Hollande said that these disruptive elements have nothing to do with defenders of the environment.



Brussels: French President Francois Hollande on Sunday condemned the "scandalous" behaviour of far-left activists who clashed with police in Paris ahead of key UN climate talks.

"These disruptive elements have nothing to do with defenders of the environment," Hollande said at an EU-Turkey summit in Brussels.

"It is doubly regrettable, even scandalous that this happened at the Place de la Republique where flowers and candles have been left in memory of those who were killed by the terrorists` bullets" in the November 13 Paris attacks, he said.
