'Yellow Vest' Protests Turn Violent in Paris
A French "yellow vest" protester's hand was ripped apart Saturday during violent clashes in Paris as demonstrators tried to storm the French National Assembly in a 13th consecutive week of unrest.
Police said the injured person lost four fingers as police swooped in to stop protesters from breaching the parliament's exterior. Police could not confirm French media reports that the hand of the demonstrator, who was being treated at a hospital, was blown up by a grenade used to disperse unruly crowds…
Drouet is a known figure of the movement, repeatedly calling for demonstrations on social media.
