A French union says it has secured the government’s agreement to allow a protest march on Thursday in Paris.

Philippe Martinez, the head of the left-wing CGT union, made the announcement following an emergency meeting with the interior minister.

If confirmed, it would reverse a police statement earlier on Wednesday banning the demonstration.

Police had insisted any rally would have to be stationary, citing violence at a Paris protest last week.
