  • Violence mars yellow vest protest in Paris as unrest spreads to Rome

Riot policemen react to tear gas during a demonstration by the "yellow vests" movement in Paris, France February 9, 2019.

The police source, however, said numbers were higher, with 21,000 demonstrators taking part in rallies outside Paris.

About 200 "yellow vests" demonstrators protested in the western French city of Nantes on Saturday, Feb. 9, for what the movement has dubbed "Act 13" of their weekly demonstrations, which have shaken President Emmanuel Macron's authority.

Paris police confirmed that a demonstrator was injured in the hand and been treated by paramedics, but did not identify the victim.

The serious hand injury was sustained during violent clashes with cops on the streets of Paris today in the 13th consecutive week of demonstrations.

A auto, motorbikes and multiple trash bins were set ablaze as the protest moved toward the city's Invalides monument but France's Interior Ministry said this week's protest was significantly smaller than last week's.

Such vehicles have been a common sight in Paris since deadly extremist attacks in 2015. But the Interior Ministry said the protests are much smaller than last week's.

Castaner said: "Every day the military. protects our compatriots from the risk of terrorism".

Police said 31 demonstrators had been arrested in the unrest.

"A Right-wing group of Yellow Vests attacked a Left-wing one, and the result was carnage", one protester who witnessed the confrontation told reporters, according to the Daily Mail Sunday.

The yellow vest activists, who have brought hundreds of thousands onto the streets over the past three months, are now trying to achieve electoral success but the movement is politically divided and has no appointed leader.

Recent polls show his approval ratings rising.

"We have to win to have more social and fiscal justice in this country", said Mairesse, who was carrying a placard calling for the reimposition of a wealth tax on high earners repealed by Macron.
