    Ambulance drivers continue protesting the reform of vehicle financing in the health care system. Under the reform, local hospitals that receive funding from the state budget must themselves determine the services of which patient-transporting agencies to use.

    Paris saw a new wave of protests on Friday, with demonstrators partially blocking the Champs Elysees. They were protesting the reform approved by the French government on October 1 that forced local hospitals to make their own choice concerning patient-transport services provider.
