The Latest: France’s Macron denounces violent Paris protest

8:10 p.m.

French President Emmanuel Macron is denouncing violent protesters who attacked police and vandalized a Paris monument, promising they will be "held responsible for their acts."

Macron said Saturday that the protests which have left dozens injured and at least 224 arrested "have nothing to do with the peaceful expression of a legitimate anger." He says "no causes justifies" attacks on police or pillaging stores and burning buildings.

Macron said he is holding an emergency government meeting Sunday on the protests. He spoke from the Group of 20 industrial nations summit being held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
