Paris Tourism Sites To Close On Saturday

On Saturday, French authorities will close dozens of museums, tourism sites and shops, including the Eiffel Tower and Louvre.

According to Reuters, officials said that authorities are fearful a recurrence of last week’s violence in Paris.

“We cannot take the risk when we know the threat.”

Culture Minister Franck Riester

Riester claimed that far-right and far-left agitators were planning to hijack rallies by “yellow vest” protesters in Paris.

Protesters are calling on social media for “Act IV” - a fourth weekend of protest.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said 65,000 police would be drafted in to stop a repeat of last Saturday’s mayhem in Paris.
