At least 32 people were arrested in Paris on Saturday, as clashes broke out between protesters and police during the 62nd consecutive weekend of Yellow Vests demonstrations.
Riot police can be seen beating protesters with batons, deploying large amounts of tear gas and putting out fires. According to police headquarters in Paris, 32 demonstrators had been arrested by 3.45 pm local time (14.45 GMT).
By evening, emergency services extinguished objects that had been set alight in the middle of the capital’s streets, while the demonstrators slowly dispersed.
A nation-wide strike against pension reforms which started in December – the largest to hit the country in years – breathed new life into the Yellow Vests movement, which has tens of thousands of protesters take to the streets every Saturday since November 2018.
