Donald Trump slams Paris Agreement in tweet commenting on French riots

Eiffel Tower to close as France fears more riots

Just a week earlier some 200 cars were torched and the famed Arc de Triomphe was vandalized as protesters expressed opposition to Macron's government, according to the report.

Calls on social media for protesters to attack the police or march on the presidential palace have especially rattled the authorities. A ring of steel surrounded the Elysee Palace itself, as police stationed trucks and reinforced steel barriers in streets throughout the entire neighbourhood.

Authorities said 575 people had been searched and briefly arrested and 361 people of them remained in custody after police found potential weapons such as hammers, baseball bats and metal petanque balls on them. Angry protesters on Saturday tried to rip the boards off.

"There have been around 70 arrests following checks carried out as a preventive measure", Brussels police spokeswoman Ilse Van De Keere said.

Police have urged shops and restaurants on Paris's Champs-Elysees to shut and some museums will also be closed.

We will keep you up to date with developments throughout the day after last weekend's protests saw the capital's worst street unrest in more than half a century and France's young centrist president, Emmanuel Macron, faces the stiffest challenge of his term so far.

Some could be held in the city centre on what is a major Christmas shopping weekend.

French President Emmanuel Macron agreed late Wednesday to abandon the fuel tax hike that triggered the movement, but their anger at his government has not abated.

Fearing last weekend's violence, the French Interior Minister, Christophe Castaner, said on Monday that the event should be postponed but the organisers chose to go ahead with it, reported French media. In response, "Macron, resign!" has become the main slogan of the "yellow vest" demonstrators. The national gendarme service posted a video on Twitter of police tackling a protester and confiscating his risky material, which appeared to be primarily a tennis racket.

The seven "yellow vest" invited to the meeting said they were satisfied from the discussion.

Protesters played a cat-and-mouse game with riot police, moving from the heavily guarded Champs Elysees area to other parts of the city, setting cars, garbage bins and wooden shutters on fire. So the protesters tried other routes, marching through the prime shopping district that includes the high-end stores of Galeries Lafayette and Printemps and the Palais Garnier opera house.

About 89,000 police were deployed across France on Saturday, some 8,000 of them in Paris.

About 8,000 police will be deployed across Paris, equipped with a dozen barricade-busting armored vehicles that could be used for the first time in a French urban area since riots in 2005.

Mr Macron, who has not spoken in public since he condemned last Saturday's disturbances while at the G20 summit in Argentina, will address the nation early next week, his office said.

"The protesters want President Trump because some of them recognize that in 2016 the American people found the courage to elect a president who would be willing to stand up against the united forces of Marxism, globalism and political correctness". "But I still want to be here to say 'Stop, that's enough, this has to stop'".

The cost of diesel has increased by 20 per cent in the past 12 months to an average of 1.49 euros per litre.

"I'm here for my son", said the 30-year-old, who had travelled down to Paris from the Normandy port of Caen.
