France gay marriage protest violence

Napoleon's tomb in Paris is shrouded in tear gas as French police prepare to charge rioting protesters at the end of a demonstration against gay marriage. About 200 people fought running battles with police. The clashes erupted after most of the 150, 000 opponents of same-sex marriage had gone home. Four and half thousand police were on duty for the rally. A day before the event the French interior minister warned protesters not to bring children along because of the risk of violence. Far right militants have clashed with police at other recent rallies. France's first gay wedding is due to take place on Wednesday after legislation opening the way for same-sex unions cleared its final hurdle earlier this month.
