Protester killed during French fuel demonstration


A female protester has been killed after she was hit by a motorist during demonstrations across France against rising fuel taxes.

106 people have been injured as demonstrators blockaded major roads,  causing gridlock in the process. Police said more than a hundred others were injured, many as furious drivers tried to force their way past.

Diesel prices have surged 23% over the last year and it’s President Macron who’s taking the blame.
