'Yellow vests': French minister tells Trump to stop meddling in country's politics

Macron No Where to be Seen as Violent Protests Loom in France

The demonstrations have also affected the cultural life of Paris. Police were mounted on horses and surrounded protesters with trained dogs.

Unimpressed, the "yellow vests" call for a new protest on Dec 1 on the Champs-Elysees.

Meanwhile, an Al Arabiya reporter said that 10 people are injured amid clashes with police. Used tear gas canister lids lay scattered on the cobblestones of the Champs-Elysees.

The next protests take place the following Saturday, Nov 24.

The Elysee Palace official said on Sunday that the goal is to mobilize into action the panoply of officials representing political, economic and social forces of France in a bid to unwind a spiral of protests. More than 500 people have been arrested.

Most of the protesters remain peaceful, and there are no signs so far of the rioting and looting that marked a similar protest last Saturday and prompted fears of greater violence this week.

Roger shot to viral fame in 2015 thanks when a photo of him squashing a bucket lit up social media. The last photo taken of Roger showed him idling on the ground as he waited to be fed.

Also shut were the monuments and museums of Paris like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.

French President Emannuel Macron suspended the hike last week, but protesters have continued to criticize the government, saying Macron only cares about the rich.

Officers frisked people and searched bags every hundred metres or so throughout central Paris, and even confiscated gas masks and protective goggles from Associated Press journalists.

His office claimed he did not want to add fuel to the fire ahead of Saturday's protests. Some in Belgium appeared intent only on confronting police.

Macron's government had warned that the yellow vest protests had created a "monster" and that Saturday's protests would be hijacked by radicalized and rebellious crowds.

Still, TV footage broadcast around the world of the violence in Paris neighborhoods popular with tourists has tarnished the country's image. The iconic shopping center Galeries Lafayette also closed its doors.

Here is a timeline of the "yellow vest" movement in France, from the first online rumblings against a fuel tax hike to nationwide protests that led to the worst Paris riots in decades.

China prepares to go for the far aspect of the Moon
The scientific instruments on its lander are still operating, making Chang'e-3 the longest working man-made probe on the moon. In preparation for the launch , China placed a relay satellite in orbit this May to facilitate communication with the probe.

As reported "Znayu", "yellow vests" are on the offensive, the police arrest the demonstrators, their demands.

The movement has no clear leaders, and past protests have attracted extremists who hurled projectiles at police.

"We are here to tell (Macron) our discontent", said protester Myriam Diaz. It shows a woman, Ms Jacline Mouraud, addressing French President Emmanuel Macron - "Monsieur Macron", she says - from her living room.

Cyril, a garbage truck driver in Normandy who earns 1,430 euros ($1,625) a month, said Macron's mistake was trying to reform France too quickly.

"I'm here for my 15-month-old son".

Four people have died in the protests including two in vehicle accidents at illegal roadblocks set up by the yellow vests in regional France. Christmas markets, national soccer matches and countless other events have been canceled or hurt by the protests.

U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday morning to comment on the ongoing riots in Paris, placing the blame for the protests on the Paris Agreement from which the U.S. withdrew previous year. Unlike in France, the Belgians and the Dutch aren't about to be hit with new fuel surcharges in order to handle "climate change".
