Striking firefighters in Wallis and Futuna say they are exasperated over the lack of response from the French state.

They launched their strike in September to push for better employment conditions and to express their concern about the budget.

Local television said they set small fires outside the territorial administration in Mata Utu in protest.

Some of the strikers put on yellow vests to express their frustration.
