French Labour, Employment and Social Dialogue minister Michel Sapin speaks to journalists in a French state employment agency, Pole Emploi, in Nantes, western France on February 13, 2013 following the self immolation of an unemployed Frenchman outside the agency. The man had sent messages to journalists warning he would set himself alight this week after being declared ineligible for unemployment benefits. The number of unemployed has risen steadily in France for the past 20 months, and could soon reach the record high set in January 1997 of 3.2 million.
