Paris pro­test­ers try to storm par­lia­ment

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - News -

A French yel­low vest pro­tester’s hand was ripped apart Satur­day dur­ing vi­o­lent clashes in Paris as demon­stra­tors tried to storm the Na­tional Assem­bly in the 13th straight week of un­rest.

Po­lice said the in­jured pro­tester lost four fin­gers as po­lice swooped in to stop demon­stra­tors from breach­ing the par­lia­ment’s ex­te­rior. As scuf­fles broke out in front of the Na­tional Assem­bly and po­lice re­sponded with tear gas, paramedics hud­dled around the in­jured pro­tester at the Na­tional Assem­bly gates.

Cars, mo­tor­bikes and trash bins were set ablaze by pro­test­ers.
