France suspends fuel tax hike after Paris riots

Dec 04, 2018 18:46 IST

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has announced a suspension of fuel tax and utility hikes in an effort to appease a protest movement that plunged Paris into chaos last weekend. Philippe said the planned increase, which has provoked violent riots and was set to be introduced in January, will be suspended for six months. More than 100 people were injured and 412 arrested over the weekend during France's worst urban riot in years.
