French Interior Ministry stated that, more than 1,300 people were put in custody following Saturday protest.

This is the fourth week of 'Yellow Vests' protests, which turned into the worst urban rioting in decades in the French capital and other cities.

The Yellow Vest movement emerged last month after French President Emmanuel Macron announced hikes in fuel taxes to encourage a transition towards greener energy. The French government have now suspended the prices hikes but protests continue nevertheless.
