The French government has survived a vote of no-confidence in Parliament by 42 votes. The motion was forced by the right-wing opposition party in response to controversial labor reforms.
George Zimmerman, the man who was cleared of murder after he shot dead the unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida four years ago, is persisting with efforts to auction the gun used in the killing. It was removed from one auction site, which said it wanted no part in the listing, but it's now up for sale on a different site. David Willis reports. “The killing of Trayvon Martin in a gated community on the outskirts of Orlando sparked protests which gave rise to the Black Lives Matter movement, and prompted a national debate about race relations in America. George Zimmerman maintained he acted in self-defense after the teenager attacked him in the street, something Trayvon Martin's family strenuously denies. Now, after another website refused the posting, Mr. Zimmerman has put the gun up for auction on a site called Unitedgungroup.com with a starting price of 5,000 dollars.”
