Parisian activists occupy Apple store amid reports company owes billions in taxes

About a hundred activists occupied an Apple store in Paris - demanding the US technology giant pay billions of euros the EU says it owes in back taxes.

The activist group claim that demonstrations were held in Apple stores in more than 30 cities across France today.
