Video shared to Twitter shows a store in Paris with broken windows and clothes strewn on the floor, as well as a minivan on fire and a bank branch with broken glass doors on Saturday (December 8). A security alarm can be heard blaring.

Anti-government protesters faced off with French riot police in Paris on Saturday, ha hrefing projectiles, torching cars and vandalizing shops and restaurants in a fourth weekend of unrest that has shaken President Emmanuel Macron’s authority.

Police used tear gas, water cannon and horses to charge protesters on roads fanning out from the Champs Elysees boulevard, but encountered less violence than a week ago, when the capital witnessed its worst unrest since the 1968 student riots.

French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said there had been about 10,000 protesters in Paris by early evening and some 125,000 across the country.
