Paris police fired tear gas to push back yellow vest protesters, Saturday, November 16. Protesters are trying to revive their movement on the first anniversary of the sometimes violent uprising against President Emmanuel Macron and policies seen as favoring the rich.

French police have arrested more than 250 demonstrators across the country during rallies marking the first anniversary of "yellow vest" protest movement. Officials say 173 people were arrested in Paris.

Interior Minister Christophe Castaner, however, told Europe 1 radio on Sunday that that there were few legitimate demonstrators among those who rioted in southeastern Paris Saturday for several hours. (VOA/AP)
