France: 'Yellow Vest' violence causes chaos and clashes in central Paris

Protests turned increasingly violent in Paris on Saturday as members of the so-called 'Yellow Vest' movement fought with police. Protesters could be seen kicking and shoving riot police in the area around the Arc de Triomphe, while the police responded with salvoes of stun grenades and tear gas canisters. Water cannons were also turned on the yellow vest-clad demonstrators, who could be seen... Еще carrying makeshift barricades. The 'Yellow Vest' movement sprang up last month following the announcement by French President Emmanuel Macron of increased diesel taxes in order to help meet climate targets. Previous demonstrations, which have now inspired similar protests in Belgium, have ended with violence, with two people killed and over 600 injuries.
