France's "yellow vests" protest for a tenth week

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

"Yellow vest" protesters descended on Paris in their thousands, according to police estimates, on Saturday (January 19), marking a tenth consecutive weekend of protests against President Emmanuel Macron's government.

Protesters assembled by the esplanade des Invalides near the French parliament and marched through the city's Left Bank.

The demonstrations were peaceful, though many shops had closed in preparation for unrest.

A police source said there were around 7,000 protesters in Paris, while 5,000 policemen on their flanks.

Some marchers gathered near the Champs Elysees, while there were also similar demonstrations in other major cities across France.

The "yellow vest" protests - named after the fluorescent jackets French motorists must have in their cars - began in November over later-scrapped fuel tax hikes.
