France Girds for Security Challenges at Euro 2016 Soccer Championship
PARISWhen soccer fans set off smoke bombs and firecrackers at the Stade de France last Saturday, the explosions did more than add to the drama of a French cup final between bitter rivals. They exposed gaps in Frances efforts to tighten security just two weeks before hosting Euro 2016, the continents largest sporting event.

Still in a terror-induced state of emergency after 130 people were killed in the November attacks, French authorities are preparing to manage 8 million fans and secure around 100 locations for the European soccer championships.

PARIS For years, lovestruck visitors to Paris had affixed locks, often inscribed with their initials or names, to the wire mesh panels along the Pont des Arts, flinging the keys into the Seine River below. But last year, after a section of the bridges railing collapsed under the weight of some 700,000 declarations of fidelity, the city removed the locks, citing reasons of aesthetics and security.

Johnny Depp's Visit to Daughter Lily-Rose in Paris Just Before Divorce News
Johnny Depp made a special trip to visit his daughter in Paris a few weeks before news broke of his divorce from Amber Heard.

Depp, 52, supported his 16-year-old daughter Lily-Rose at a screening of her film The Dancer at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this month, visiting her for the weekend of May 6-8.

A source tells PEOPLE that Depp may have warned her about his impending split with Heard.

"I don't think Johnny's trip to Paris this month was a coincidence," the source said.

Afterward, Depp headed back to London for a May 8 press conference promoting Alice Through the Looking Glass but was delayed (and posed for some selfies) when his Eurostar train made an emergency stop in Calais due to smoke in one of the carriages.

France is opening a wine theme park (complete with a tipsy boat ride)
Wine-lovers, pack your bags and head to France.

Not just because they have the best Bordeaux, or to see the Eiffel Tower, but because finally, France is giving the world what its so desperately been needing: a dedicated theme park celebrating the joy of wine. Disneyland might need to rethink that happiest place on earth tagline.

Opening this June, La Cité du Vin is a snazzy new theme park/museum mashup sitting in Bordeaux (obvs).

And yes, its all wine, everything.

France labour dispute: Hollande 'won't back down' over protests
French President Francois Hollande says he will not back down over labour reforms after unions threatened to escalate protests over the changes.

All but one of the union blockades at fuel depots have now been cleared, the authorities say. But shortages have caused long queues at petrol stations.

"I will stay the course because I think these are good reforms," Mr Hollande said.

However, Prime Minister Manuel Valls signalled they could be modified.

Euro 2016: France boss Deschamps to sue Cantona over racism accusation
Lawyers for France's football manager Didier Deschamps say he will sue Eric Cantona for suggesting his Euro 2016 squad selection was racially motivated.

Cantona said on Thursday that Deschamps intentionally left two players of African origin, Karim Benzema and Hatem Ben Arfa, out of the squad.

"Benzema is a great player. Ben Arfa is a great player," he told the Guardian.

"But Deschamps, he has a really French name. Maybe he is the only one in France to have a truly French name."

He went on to say: "Ben Arfa is maybe the best player in France today. But they have some origins. I am allowed to think about that."

Speaking to French sports newspaper L'Equipe, Deschamps' lawyer called the remarks "unacceptable, slanderous and defamatory" and said his client would sue.
