Earlier in the day, French police have used tear gas at a climate change rally in Paris on Sunday, which had earlier been disallowed by the authorities over security concerns after the November 13 deadly attacks that had left 130 people dead.

People also removed advertisement posters around Paris, replacing them with some 600 messages denouncing the "lies" of the big business sponsors of the UN climate talks.

Hundreds of thousands of people from 150 countries around the world are staging climate change rallies Sunday.
