By Leigh Thomas and Simon Carraud PARIS (Reuters) - Rioters set fire to a bank and ransacked stores on Paris' landmark shopping street in a new flare-up of violence as France's yellow vest protests against President Emmanuel Macron and his pro-business reforms entered a fourth month. Police fired tear gas and water cannons as the protests turned violent again after weeks of relative calm during marches and declining numbers of participants. A Banque Tarneaud branch spewed flames before firefighters arrived and rescued two people from the building, with eleven suffering minor injuries, the fire department said.
