PARIS: French rail unions held make-or-break talks with employers Monday to try to end a six-day strike that threatens to disrupt the Euro 2016 football championships already clouded by security fears. Tensions were raised on Monday as Ukraine’s intelligence service said it had arrested a Frenchman who was allegedly planning to stage 15 attacks before and during the tournament.
