France's government, scrambling to end a wave of protests that could disrupt the Euro 2016 soccer championship, called Friday for an end to a rail strike and told pilots their plans to stop work were "irresponsible".There was little disruption to the Paris underground train network despite a strike call by the CGT union, and the SNCF rail company said the number of staff who stopped work on Friday fell to 10 percent, down from 17 percent Wednesday.Transport Minister Alain Vidalies said the government had satisfied union demands to protect rest periods for rail workers and help with the 50 billion-euro ($56 billion) debt of SNCF, saying the CGT should call off its action.
