  • French yellow vest protester sustains hand injury in Paris

A "yellow vest" demonstrator lost his hand during clashes with police outside the main parliament building in Paris yesterday, witnesses told AFP, during a 13th weekend of anti-government protests across France.

One young man who was trying to take pictures of the demonstration was injured on his left hand after riot officers fired tear gas into the crowd.

But France's Interior Ministry said this week's protest was significantly smaller than last week's.

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

Such vehicles have been a common sight in Paris since deadly extremist attacks in 2015.

In a graphic video of the aftermath, French paramedics are seen gathered around the injured protester at the National Assembly gates, providing emergency medical treatment and preventing onlookers from getting too close.

"Every day the military ... protects our compatriots from the risk of terrorism. These attacks are intolerable", Castaner said.

Riot police run past burning dustbins set on fire by yellow vest protesters as they keep pressure on French President Emmanuel Macron's government, for the 13th straight weekend of demonstrations, in Paris, France, on February 9, 2019.

In the south of France police blocked yellow vest leader Maxime Nicolle from crossing into Italy to join forces with Italian demonstrators.

Macron's popularity has nosedived since the protests kicked off a year ago in response to a planned fuel tax.

French President Emmanuel Macron - the target of many demonstrators' anger - seems to be clawing back support from the public as he tries to address the movement's anger with a national political debate on economic injustice.

In Rome, tens of thousands of people took to the streets to protest the course of Italy's populist government.

He said more than 60 MPs have received threats or had homes or offices vandalised since the start of the revolt in November, an unprecedented number in post-war France. Recent polls show Macron's approval ratings are rising.
