Macron visits school on first day of class amid Marseille visit

Description

Residents in some of Marseille's poorest crime-ridden districts pleaded with French President Emmanuel Macron for help on Wednesday as he visited the Mediterranean port following a spate of drugs-related murders. France's second-biggest city has long been known for its run-down streets and desolate housing estates, as well as its gritty charm and fierce local pride. But with the April 2021 presidential elections approaching, a surge in deadly shootings has put its long-standing social problems on the political agenda.
