Lady Gaga's Paris gigs called off

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has cancelled her Paris concerts as nationwide protests continue in France in a stand-off over a bill to raise the retirement age.

The French Senate is wrapping up a debate on the pension reform bill and could vote on it today.

Students are planning nationwide protests to urge legislators to strike it down.

More than a quarter of the nation's petrol stations were out of fuel because strikers have been blocking oil refineries and fuel depots.

Lady Gaga's website says the singer postponed two Paris concerts "as there is no certainty the trucks can make it" to the show.

In Marseille today passengers carried luggage on foot to reach the airport, blocked by union protesters.
