Demonstrator loses hand at Paris ‘yellow vest march

Dozens of far-right supporters and ultra-leftists taking part in "yellow vest" protests fought with fists, rocks and sticks in the eastern city of Lyon at the weekend.

A "yellow vest" protester in France had his fingers ripped off during violent clashes at the Parliament building in Paris, as the anti-government protests entered its 13th week, the media reported on Sunday.

Eight police officers were lightly injured during clashes with protesters in Bordeaux.

The movement of the "yellow jackets" holds protest rally for the 13th time, as usual, at the end of the week.

At least 10 protesters were arrested after scuffles broke out with police near the Palais Bourbon, where the National Assembly meets. Witnesses told the French AFP news agency that the man's hand had been torn apart when flash-ball grenade exploded.

In the south of France police blocked yellow vest leader Maxime Nicolle from crossing into Italy to join forces with Italian demonstrators. The number of protesters has ebbed considerably since the first Yellow Vest demonstrations in mid-November 2018.

Duke Blue Devils vs. Virginia Cavaliers, 2/9/19 Predictions & Odds
Both these teams were terrible from 3-point range the first time around. "But we did jam the lane, so we got that going for us". The No. 3 Cavaliers (20-2, 8-2 ACC) were the last team against which anyone would figure to shake a 3-point funk.

The Yellow Vest protests, which started late previous year, began as a movement against Emmanuel Macron's proposed fuel taxes.

Politicians from across the political spectrum condemned the arson attack on the home of Richard Ferrand, a close ally of Macron and president of Parliament's Lower House.

Mr Ferrand published pictures on Twitter of his scorched living room, writing: "Nothing justifies intimidations and violence towards an elected official of the Republic".

Rival groups, who were supposed to be united in protest against president Emmanuel Macron's government, were filmed battling each other in Lyon on Saturday.

"The opportunity will come on May 26 (the election day) when finally, the French people will be able to take back control of their future, destiny, (and) pride, which are poorly represented by a character like Macron", Salvini said in the video.
