Frenchman self-immolates to protest dole exclusion

Members of the press stand outside a French state employment agency, Pole Emploi, in Nantes, western France on February 13, 2013 following the self immolation of an unemployed Frenchman. An unemployed Frenchman died Wednesday after setting himself on fire outside the state employment agency in the western city of Nantes, police said. The man had sent messages to journalists warning he would self-immolate this week after being declared ineligible for unemployment benefits.
