    A producer with the RT broadcaster’s live video news agency Ruptly was injured during anti-labor reform protests in the French capital of Paris, the channel’s press service said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Anywhere from 12,000 to 50,000 Parisians were estimated to march outside the French parliament building in a mass demonstration against the new bill that turned violent. Police dispensed tear gas and a handful of arrests were made on charges of gun possession and attacking law enforcement officials.

    The unnamed Ruptly producer sustained injuries during her coverage of the unrest when a rock thrown from a crowd struck her in the head. She was hospitalized after receiving firs aid, the RT broadcaster told RIA Novosti.

    RT UK camerawoman Hulya Sen was injured in the leg during protests against the same labor reform bill early last month. Another journalist, RT France correspondent Kyrill Kotikov-Convenant was swept up in the smoke as police fired tear gas while broadcasting the demonstration through social media.

    On March 24, RT reporter Jonathan Moadab was caught in clashes and tear gas in Paris as people were protesting against the same unpopular labor legislation.
