ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Manuel Valls, the ex-French Prime Minister and leading candidate in the Socialist presidential primary, was flour-bombed by a protester on Thursday. The incident took place in the northeastern city of Strasbourg during a walkabout at a Christmas market. The man who threw the flour at Valls was protesting against a French parliamentary procedure known as "49.3" to force unpopular bills through parliament. "We do not forget the 49.3. We don't forgive it," he screamed while aiming the flour on Valls as he entered a side-street cafe. The man was detained by the police.
