Commuter traffic piled up on Tuesday as strikes against pension reform entered their 13th day.

French trade unions called for a major push before the holidays, urging workers across all sectors to strike and join mass protests.

Eight out of the capital's 14 metro lines were closed while others offered bare-minimum services.

Around 80% of trains in the Ile-de-France region where Paris is located were not operating.
