PARIS (Reuters) - Shares in French travel and leisure companies, such as Air France KLM and hotels group Accor, fell on Friday after France imposed a month-long lockdown on Paris and parts of the north to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Air France KLM shares were down 2.6% while Accor fell about 1%. Shares in French catering companies Sodexo and Elior were also hit, retreating by about 2%.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex on Thursday announced a month-long lockdown on Paris and some other parts of the country to tackle the spread of the virus.
