Angry army wives protest in Paris over military working conditions

Several hundred women married to French soldiers are holding a demonstration in Paris to denounce the “deplorable working conditions” in the army.

The protest was organised by the group Angry Soldiers’ Wives, which has nearly 5,200 members.

Mercedes Crépin, who helped set it up, said some troops on anti-terror duty were being housed in damp hangars infested with cockroaches and lice.
