France: Riot police unleash tear gas on Paris petrol price protesters

Police and protesters exchanged volleys of tear gas as the so-called 'Yellow Vest' demonstrations raged in Paris on Saturday morning. Riot police could be seen readying up around the Arc de Triomphe shortly before protesters descended on the area. Hundreds of demonstrators clad in yellow vests could be seen in the vicinity before tear gas was let off, leading to exchanges. The Yellow Vest... Еще movement emerged spontaneously last month after French President Emmanuel Macron announced controversial hikes in diesel prices to encourage a transition towards greener energy. Previous demonstrations have ended with violence, with two people killed and over 600 injuries.
