French Strikes Halt Some Rail Service

Eurostar rail service is believed to be relatively unaffected by France's transport workers strike, the Daily Telegraph of Britain is reporting, although this week's debut of a London-Paris route may be disrupted. The strike has halted French national rail services, but Eurostar has switched to an all-British staff to avoid disruptions, the newspaper reports. Students protesting education reforms might block Wednesday's inaugural service between London's St. Pancras station and Paris. French student groups also have indicated they plan to block railway stations on Tuesday in support of the transport worker strike. (JM)
