Protests dwindle in Paris as Gilets Jaunes hit by torrential rain

In Paris, the dismal weather has done what President Macron had failed to do: dampen the ‘Yellow Vest’ protests against him.

Although thousands descended on the streets for the fifth weekend running, the numbers were smaller.

More than 80 people were arrested in Paris alone – after scuffles broke out between anti-government protesters and police near the Champs Elysee. And one man died near the Belgian border after he crashed his car into a truck at a protesters roadblock.
