Baku, September 3, AZERTAC

Hundreds of French farmers and more than 1,500 tractors have converged on central Paris in the latest protest against collapsing incomes, according to the BBC News.

The protesters blocked major arteries into the capital, but officials say they caused little disruption.

Livestock and dairy farmers in particular have been badly hit by falling prices on world markets.

They have been hit by tough competition between supermarkets as well as a Russian embargo on EU food imports.
