Water cannon, barricades, arrests at Paris protest

Dec 01, 2018 20:53 IST

Protesters angry about rising taxes on fuel clashed with riot police in France, for a third straight weekend. Nearly 80 people were arrested in central Paris, as they lit fires and threw rocks at security officers. Police fired tear gas and used water cannons as some protesters in black hoodies, piled up large plywood planks on streets and set them ablaze. At least 5,000 policemen were deployed in Paris to contain the protests.
