Paris fuel protests: Dozens arrested as 'yellow vest' demonstrations turn violent

Paris police said at least 81 people have been arrested at midday. Activists torched cars, banks and houses; smashed windows, looted stores, threw rocks at police and tagged the Arc de Triomphe with multi-colored graffiti.

France is considering introducing a state of emergency after Saturday's riots in Paris and demonstrations across the country in protest over fuel prices rises and the cost of living.

Demonstrators clash with riot police at the Arc de Triomphe during a protest of Yellow vests against rising oil prices and living costs, on December 1, 2018 in Paris.

There were 10 arrests in Meurthe-et-Moselle (Grand Est), and seven people were arrested in protests around Dijon (Côte-d'Or). "We are certain of that", he told Europe 1 radio.

Mrs Belloubet said: "When there are not only defacements that are absolutely unacceptable in our republic, I think of what happened at the Arc de Triomphe, when there are fires, not only cars - there have been 55 vehicles burned but also buildings that have been burned, when there are attacks on people, including I think a rape, these are elements that can not be acceptable in our republic".

After a meeting with members of his government on Sunday, the French presidency said in a statement that the President had asked Interior Minister Christophe Castaner to prepare security forces for future protests and Prime Minister Edouard Philippe to hold talks with political party leaders and representatives of the protesters. The jackets are an emblem of a grassroots citizens' movement protesting fuel taxes.

He then returned to Paris to view the Arc de Triomphe and hold emergency meetings with French ministers.

While several dozens were allowed into the avenue after an ID check and search, many others - some wearing gas masks or ski goggles - remained behind and fought police manning barricades and water cannons.

The protests began on November 17, when hundreds of thousands of people across France turned out to protest fuel taxes that Macron imposed as part of a plan to reduce energy consumption and tackle climate change.

According to the police in Marseille, the various demonstrators were made up of 300 yellow vests, 100 bikers and about 350 protesters called to action by the hard left CGT union to demand a change in government policy.

Last week, French authorities said 8,000 people demonstrated on the Champs-Elysees.

On his return from the G20 summit in Argentina, Macron paid an immediate visit to the Arc de Triomphe, the 19th-century arch that towers over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and avenues nearby where cars had been torched and luxury shops pillaged.

Authorities said violent groups from the far right and far left as well as "thugs" from the suburbs had infiltrated the yellow vests movement in Paris on Saturday.

Almost 190 fires were put out and six buildings set alight, the interior ministry said.

"I will never accept violence", Macron told a press conference in Buenos Aires before flying home.
