France: Clashes as police crack down on yellow vest protests

More than 40,000 people took to the streets across France for a 19th consecutive week of anti-government protests — 5,000 of them in the capital.

Most of the yellow vest protests were relatively calm but scuffles broke out in Paris in the afternoon as police moved in with tear gas against a hard core of hooded demonstrators, many wearing gas masks or helmets.
