War on the streets of Paris

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Karen Rockett

YELLOW-VESTS clash with riot po­lice in Paris as a fourth week­end of antigov­ern­ment protests turns vi­o­lent.

Of­fi­cers fired rub­ber bul­lets and tear gas af­ter 8,000 demon­stra­tors gath­ered and more than 700 peo­ple have been taken into cus­tody.

At least 55 peo­ple have been in­jured, in­clud­ing three of­fi­cers.

A ring of steel sur­rounded the El­y­see Palace as po­lice sta­tioned trucks and re­in­forced steel bar­ri­ers.
