In France, police clashed with protesters, as tens of thousands of ‘yellow vest’ demonstrators took to the streets Saturday for the fourth consecutive weekend. French authorities deployed nearly 90,000 police across the country, detained hundreds of people, and closed major landmarks and museums as a precaution. Anti-government yellow vest rallies also took place in nearby Belgium and the Netherlands. For VOA, Lisa Bryant has more on the action from Paris.
