Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - NATION&WORLD 2 -

PARIS — Thou­sands of yel­low vest pro­test­ers marched through Paris on Satur­day for a ninth straight week­end, as oth­ers took to the streets in the cen­tral city of Bourges to de­nounce Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron’s eco­nomic poli­cies.

Some scuf­fles broke out be­tween po­lice and pro­test­ers near the Arc de Tri­om­phe. Se­cu­rity forces used tear gas against some who were throw­ing rocks and other ob­jects at them.

Mean­while, more than 1,000 yel­low vest pro­test­ers marched in Bourges.
