French Police Brace for More 'Yellow Vest' Protests

French police are preparing  for a fifth straight week of "yellow vest" protests, a series of demonstrations that have grown increasingly violent.

Paris's chief of police told RTL radio about plans to deploy nearly 8,000 police and multiple armored vehicles in the French capital in anticipation of the protests.

Estimates vary, but the number of people arrested in previous weeks  appears to be in the thousands , and six protesters have died.

The protests began in opposition to a proposed fuel tax hike but have grown to include a spectrum of political goals.

French President Emmanuel Macron has recently made concessions to the movement, like delaying the tax hike and raising the minimum wage.
