‘Assaults, fights, stabbings’: More than 400 injured in France’s yellow vest protests

The tally of injured in assaults, fights, and stabbings during France’s “yellow vest” protests against fuel price hikes has jumped to more than 400 after a restive night.

Fourteen of the injured were in a serious condition as the demonstrations against Emmanuel Macron, the French president, went into their second day.

One person died on Saturday during the protests, for which people are wearing high-visibility yellow vests and setting up road blocks across the country.
