1. France: Violent clashes erupt between firefighters and police01:58[−]
Violent clashes broke out between police forces and firefighters who were protesting in Paris on Tuesday. Footage shows police repeatedly using tear gas and water cannons against firefighters. Scuffles during which police were seen beating firefighters with their batons also took place. Firefighters rallied in the French capital to demand guarantuees for their pension plan, better working conditions and a pay raise, with an increase from 19 percent to 25 percent in their 'risk pay,' as they claim staff shortages have been making their job more difficult. A previous protest held by French firefighters in October was marred by clashes with police in Paris and in the southern city of Dijon. On December 11, French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced a two-year-extension of the working period necessary to earn a full pension, triggering the anger of workers and trade unions. The reforms attempt to overhaul France's pension system into a universal system that will see pay-outs calculated from whole careers rather than the current last five years of activity. The pension age will also be increased from 62 to 64.

4. USA: Trump 'obsessed' with Biden - Democrats' Schumer00:48[−]
Democratic House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said US President Donald Trump was "obsessed" with his political rival Joe Biden. "He's willing to risk our elections and our national security to go after him, [...] his lawyers are willing to risk the solemnity and purpose of an impeachment trial to go after him," Schumer said at the press conference flanked by fellow senators. Schumer then challenged the White House to let John Bolton testify at the impeachment trial. "We want four witnesses, four documents. The Republicans can call who they want. They have the ability. They have the majority. We want these witnesses and these documents, because we want the truth," stated Schumer. "President Trump and Ambassador Bolton said diametrically opposed things. Only one of them is willing to testify under oath. Who do you believe?" Senator Jack Read called on Trump to release the transcript of the July 25 phone call he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy which constituted the grounds for his impeachment. "If President Trump really wants Americans to 'read the transcript', all he has to do is release them," Reed said. Trump is facing impeachment over charges of abuse of power as well as obstruction of Congress, but with a Republican majority in the Senate and a super-majority required for a conviction, the president looks set to remain in office.

10. Algeria: Opposition call for release of jailed activists and end to shale gasВт, 28 янв[−]
Thousands took to the streets of Algiers for the 49th consecutive week of anti-governmental protests on Tuesday. Student activists, massively joined by residents, marched through the capital's central Boulevard Amirouche holding banners denouncing the shale gas exploitation and its dangers, and called for release of the student activists jailed over their role in protest movement and the main demand of changing the regime. A protester commenting on the reasons of gathering stressed that the demands "did not change simply because these demands have not been fulfilled" by the authorities. Opposition street protests exploded last year following a wave of political turmoil in the country, which lasted several months. Dubbed the 'Smile Revolution', mass demonstrations began after 82-year-old then-President Abdelaziz Bouteflika announced that he would be running for a fifth term in office. While Bouteflika dropped his bid and ultimately resigned in April, protests continued with the movement demanding a complete political overhaul.
