After four days of unrest across France, major events are being cancelled around the country - BBC said.

The biggest one is the Friday and Saturday concerts of French singer Mylène Farmer at the Stade de France, in a northern suburb of Paris. Despite the people camping in front of the venue for days to get the best spot, the concerts are not going ahead.

Marseille was preparing for its Pride march today after many other big cities had it in previous weeks, but that has also been postponed.

French chain store Fnac was ready for the final night of its "Fnac Live Paris" festival, but that was cancelled, too.

The school districts of Versailles, Paris and Créteil called on school heads to postpone or cancel planned end-of-year school festivities.

We could expect more cancellations as President Macron announced yesterday that "the decision has been taken to cancel several festive events and gatherings in the most sensitive departments", without specifying which events were involved.

Macron has cancelled his visit to Germany, which had been due to start tomorrow.
