Police prevent French yellow vests crossing into Italy

Police prevent French yellow vests crossing into Italy

A "yellow vest" demonstrator lost his hand during clashes with police outside the main parliament building in Paris yesterday, witnesses told AFP, during a 13th weekend of anti-government protests across France.

One witness who filmed the incident, 21-year-old Cyprien Royer, said it had been caused by a flash-ball grenade fired by police to disperse the crowd.

A vehicle, motorbikes and multiple trash bins were set ablaze as the protest moved toward the city's Invalides monument but France's Interior Ministry said this week's protest was significantly smaller than last week's.

Protesters wearing yellow vests take part in a demonstration by the "yellow vests" movement in Paris, France February 9, 2019.

"Every day the military ... protects our compatriots from the risk of terrorism".

"We're not children, we're adults", said Hugues Salone, a computer engineer from Paris, among the chanting and placard-waving protesters. "These attacks are intolerable", Castaner said.

The protests have brought hundreds of thousands of people out onto the streets all over France.

More than 5,000 of Saturday's protesters were in Paris, where there were 38 arrests following widespread rioting that saw several critical governmental and private infrastructure targeted.

As scuffles broke out in front of the National Assembly and French police responded with tear gas, paramedics huddled around the injured protester at the National Assembly gates, providing emergency treatment and stopping bystanders from getting too close.

President Emmanuel Macron - the target of many demonstrators' anger - seems to be clawing back support as he tries to quell the movement with a national political debate. Recent polls show Macron's approval ratings are rising.

"The government has to come out of its virtual reality and enter the real world", said Annamaria Furlan, the head of the Italian Confederation of Workers' Trade Unions Cisl.
