France cuts period for refugees' asylum bid

In the past hour, the French Senate voted in favour of changes to a new immigration law that reduces the time refugees can claim asylum from 11 months to six. It is aimed at speeding up the deportation of those denied asylum and the processing of those who are accepted.

Al Jazeera's David Chater has the details from Paris.
