Fire, flares and scuffles at Paris fuel protest

Police firing tear gas and using water cannon clashed with protesters in Paris who are angry over rising fuel costs and President Emmanuel Macron’s economic policies, the second weekend of “yellow vest” protests across France. Protesters threw projectiles at the police and built barricades in the street, whilst security forces responded with special rubber balls to control demonstrators. At least 18 people had been detained so far. Around 5,000 protesters had converged on the Champs Elysees where police tried to prevent them from reaching the president’s Elysee Palace nearby. Protesters sang the national anthem and waved French flags while others carried signs with slogans saying “Macron, resignation” and “Macron, thief”.
