French police fire tear gas as latest Paris ‘yellow vest’ protests turn violent

Violence flared as thousands of “yellow vest” protesters marched in the streets of Paris in a 14th round of demonstrations that have undermined French President Emmanuel Macron’s authority. Late in the afternoon, police and some hooded protesters clashed at the Esplanade des Invalides in central Paris where the march was expected to end. Police fired tear gas and charged to disperse projectile-throwing demonstrators. Earlier, protesters gathered at the symbolic rallying point at the Arc de Triomphe, a flashpoint of clashes with the police in the early days of the protest, before marching towards the Eiffel Tower and through other major streets in Paris.
