Over 40 protesters detained at Saturday riots in Paris

Paris Gilet Jaunes: Protestor's hand blown off by GRENADE as Macron faces crisis | Daily Star French 'Yellow Vest' Marches Continue for 13th Weekend

The law passed by the National Assembly this week that called for more measures to be taken against violence occurring on the fringes of the movement, which is attributed to far-right and far-left groups, was also one of the main targets of the yellow vests, who call it "freedomcide".

There were more violent clashes in France on Saturday as the Yellow Vest protest movement entered its thirteenth week.

'Graffiti was being scrawled on the statues and walls around the parliament building, but nobody got over the railings.' Police responded with baton charges and tear gas around the Champs Elysee after demonstrators threw stones at officers and vandals tried to smash shop windows.

The movement of the "yellow jackets" holds protest rally for the 13th time, as usual, at the end of the week. The number of protesters has ebbed considerably since the first Yellow Vest demonstrations in mid-November 2018.

The protesters are united only in their opposition to Emmanuel Macron, the president, and often make radically different demands of his government.

The protestor had his hand partially blown off by a teargas grenade during violent clashes between riot police and the demonstrators near the parliament building in the French capital.

The "yellow vest" demonstrators, named for high-visibility vehicle jackets, began in mid-November over fuel taxes then broadened into a more general revolt against a political class they view as out of touch with the common people.

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

French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner has gone on Twitter to express his "disgust" as French yellow vest protesters set alight an anti-terror military auto at a protest in Paris.

French prosecutors are meanwhile investigating a series of attacks on homes belonging to politicians in Macron's Republic on the Move party, ranging from vandalism to arson.
