Air turbulence, unemployment insurance reform and funerals in Iran

Did you miss the news this morning? We have put together a summary to help you see things more clearly.

It is the fear of passengers but also of flight crew during a plane journey. Air turbulence dramatically disrupted a London-Singapore flight on Tuesday, causing one death and around thirty injuries. The phenomenon, which crystallizes fears during a journey in the sky, is sometimes difficult to predict. According to experts, it is increasing with climate change.

After the pension reform, another explosive issue is on the agenda of the Minister of Labor this Wednesday. Before revealing the terms of the reform at the start of next week, Catherine Vautrin receives the social partners for two days to talk about unemployment insurance. Among the avenues mentioned by the executive is the fact of having worked nine months over the last two years, and no longer six, to open up rights to unemployment insurance. Another particularly sensitive subject: reducing the duration of compensation is also on the table.

Iran is in mourning. Tens of thousands of Iranians gathered early this Wednesday in the center of Tehran to pay a final tribute to their president Ebrahim Raïssi, who died Sunday in a helicopter crash. Waving portraits of the late leader and Iranian flags, the crowds gathered around Tehran University in the center of the capital. The supreme leader of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is to lead prayers there at 9 a.m. during the farewell ceremony for Ebrahim Raïssi and the seven other people, including the head of diplomacy Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, killed in the accident.
