12h00 : We take stock of the news at midday:

Warning the eyes ! An annular solar eclipse is in progress. Do not look at it directly, and instead go through the images of the Paris Observatory to observe the phenomenon live.

Technical hearing, but big stake: the Council of State examines today the appeals against the reform of the unemployment insurance of the unions, which hope to obtain at least its suspension before its entry into force envisaged on July 1.

• The insurance group Axa has announced that it will release an envelope of 300 million euros for 15,000 of its restaurant customers, in order to absorb part of their losses due to Covid-19.

• The alleged perpetrator of the slap inflicted on the President of the Republic will be tried this afternoon in immediate appearance.

10:07 : We will suggest that you follow this eclipse live. From 11 a.m., the Paris observatory will broadcast images of the event using its state-of-the-art equipment.

09:26 : Coming soon ! A solar eclipse will cross the sky of the northern hemisphere at midday, over a strip of about 500 km running from Canada to Siberia, passing through Europe, where it will be only partial but still dangerous. for eyes. We told you all about it in this article.
