French police are on red alert over fears anti-G20 demonstrators will target a summit in Cannes this week. Protesters have already pledged action in the neighbouring town of Nice. The G20 leaders are set to agree upon tough fiscal commitments for the eurozone and the United States.

France has taken special security measures ahead of the meeting. 12,000 police officers will be deployed in and around Cannes. These will include 100 officers from a special task force.
