France’s far-right leader Marine Le Pen arrives at parliament after winning a seat for the first time in a bittersweet victory that masked an electoral debacle for her National Front (FN) party. IMAGES
Protesters hurled bottles and smoke bombs at a demonstration against the final candidates in the upcoming presidential elections in Paris. The National Front’s (FN) Le Pen and independent centrist Macron will face off in the second round of the French elections, scheduled for May 7. During the first run-off in the presidential race, Le Pen gained 21.3 percent, trailing behind Macron, who secured 24 percent of the vote.
