France suspends fuel tax hike amid Paris protests

CBS News Tuesday, 4 December 2018
France's government on Tuesday morning said it will suspend a controversial fuel tax that triggered weeks of violent protests. The so-called "yellow vest" protests led to running battles between police and demonstrators in Paris over the weekend. The safety vests, used by broken-down drivers, symbolize the cost of fuel taxes. Protesters are upset about rising prices and a declining standard of living.
