Macron says King Charles visit to France delayed, condemns violent protesters

"Once that decision had been taken (about the protests), common sense and friendship lead us to suggest a delay," Macron said. There were violent clashes across the country on Thursday evening on the fringes of otherwise peaceful protests that have for weeks gathered huge crowds against a rise in the pension age by two years to 64.
