At least four demonstrators and eight police were injured – including one officer who sustained burns – as tens of thousands rallied against the law, forced through by the Socialist government in July after months of often violent protests.At least 15 people were arrested in the capital, where police said around 13,000 people took part in the rally against measures aimed at loosening France's notoriously rigid employment laws – the 14th such demonstration in six months. Mailly and Philippe Martinez, head of the CGT union, said they hoped legal challenges would force the withdrawal of the new law. They intend to challenge application decrees that will spell out exactly how the law applies on the ground.
