    A 36-hour rail strike is continuing to affect train services in France.

    Unions claim the state run rail company, SNCF, is trying to impose reforms before they are discussed in parliament.

    The strike is scheduled to continue until 8 a.m. on Friday 13 December.

    70 percent of long-distance trains should still run.

    Eurostar services are not affected by the strike.
