According to Sky News, President Macron was greeted by a loud chorus of boos as he visited the Arc de Triomphe, following riots across Paris.

133 people have been injured including 23 Police Officers, with over 400 arrests being made.

The riots are the worst seen in France since 1968, and are the result of protests by “Yellow Jackets” wearing hi-vis vests, who are against the rise in fuel costs and high taxes across France.
