"Judges and magistrates have taken to the streets in dozens of French cities in an escalating row with President Nicolas Sarkozy's government. For days, French courts have heard only urgent cases in protest at Mr Sarkozy's criticism of the judiciary's handling of a high profile murder. ... Demonstrations have been reported outside court buildings in towns and cities including Marseille, Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Nantes, Caen, Metz and Colmar." (02/10/11)
