The French government distributes a one-time grant of 100 euros, just over 1,000 kronor, to all residents with a net income of 2,000 euros or less, reports Le Monde.

The grant is a compensation for the rising fuel and energy prices in Europe.

Around 66,000 households that have been worst affected by record high electricity prices in southern Norway will also receive a one-off grant of around SEK 3,000, writes Verdens Gang.

On Monday, the price of electricity in the southernmost electricity area in Norway rose to a record high of 146.26 euros per megawatt hour.
