Soldiers Deployed to Prevent Paris 'Yellow Vest' Rioting


Police arrested 70 “yellow vest” protesters across France on Saturday as soldiers were deployed to prevent a repeat of rioting in Paris last weekend, Telegraph reports. 

Anti-government demonstrators set fire to dustbins in the French capital, and smashed shop windows and hurled stones at police in the northern city of Lille.

This time, police fired tear gas at protesters in Paris, Lille, Lyon in eastern France and Montpellier, in the south.

Protests were banned on the Champs-Elysées and in key areas of Nice, Toulouse and Bordeaux.

Dozens of police vehicles including armoured lorries and water cannons encircled the Arc de Triomphe at the top of the Champs-Elysées, Paris’s grandest avenue.
