French "Yellow vests" clash with police in Nantes

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Around 200 "yellow vests" demonstrators protested in western French city of Nantes on Sunday (February 9), for what the movement has dubbed "Act 13" of their weekly demonstrations that has shaken President Emmanuel Macron's authority.

Large numbers of riot police patrolled the streets of the city and fired tear gas at protesters to calm troublemakers and at least one protester was arrested.

The Interior Ministry put the total number of protesters around France at 12,000, including 4,000 in Paris.

The police source, however, said numbers were higher, with 21,000 demonstrators taking part in rallies outside Paris.

The "yellow vest" demonstrators, named for high-visibility car jackets, began in mid-November over fuel taxes then broadened into a more general revolt against a political class they view as out of touch with ordinary people.
