Protesters riot in Paris, police respond with tear gas

Thousands have protested in France to denounce police violence and President Emmanuel Macron's security policy plans which the demonstrators say would crimp civil liberties, TRT World informs.

In capital Paris, violence erupted on Saturday for the second consecutive weekend with demonstrators clashing with police, set alight vehicles, and smashing shop windows. The police fired back volleys of tear gas.

Windows of a supermarket, property agency and bank were broken while several cars burst into flames along Avenue Gambetta as demonstrators marched towards the central Place de la Republique, AFP news agency said, TRT World reports.
