Protester loses hand

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - World -

A “yel­low vest” demon­stra­tor has lost his hand dur­ing clashes with po­lice in Paris dur­ing a 13th week­end of anti-gov­ern­ment protests in France.

Tens of thou­sands turned out in cities across the coun­try to protest against French Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron’s poli­cies. Clashes broke out out­side the Na­tional Assem­bly build­ing in Paris.

While many demon­stra­tors marched peace­fully, some masked ac­tivists tried to break down bar­ri­ers out­side the par­lia­ment, and medics said the man had his hand ripped off dur­ing clashes be­tween po­lice and protesters.
