Default Police deploy tear gas as 'Yellow Vest' protest in Paris turns violent

French police deployed as 'Yellow Vest' protests hit Paris

Protesters angry about rising taxes clashed with French police for a third straight weekend and dozens were arrested after pockets of demonstrators built barricades in central Paris, lit fires and threw rocks at officers Saturday.

French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner tweeted that "1,500 troublemakers" were around the Champs-Elysées avenue, outside a perimeter secured by police, who said that 107 people were arrested.
