Taxi strike hits France

A one-day taxi strike snarled rush-hour traffic in France's two largest cities yesterday, with drivers protesting against competition from unregulated cabs.

Taxi drivers in Paris blocked highways leading from Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports, while traffic was paralysed on two main arteries leading into Marseille. It is the second such protest in two months.
