France Thursday faces its first major security challenge of the Euro 2016 football championships with a giant open-air concert at the 90,000-capacity fan zone in Paris.Superstar French DJ David Guetta will play for the crowd at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, a day before hosts France face Romania in the tournament's opening match at Paris' Stade de France. The stadium was targeted by suicide bombers in the November 13 attacks that killed 130 people across the capital and there are fears that Europe's four-yearly football extravaganza could be targeted. In the latest of four months of strikes, union supporters blockaded waste incineration centers in central Paris, causing uncollected rubbish to pile up in 10 of the capital's 20 districts.Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo called for an end to the strike action and promised to get the rubbish collected as soon as possible.
