(Worthy News) - The French government did not discuss the possibility of declaring a state of emergency to prevent future riots at "yellow-vest" protests across the country, an Elysee Palace spokesman said on Sunday.
Officials said 133 people were injured, including 23 police officers, and 412 people were arrested in the third weekend of clashes in the capital.
Hundreds of protesters ran amok, torching cars and buildings, looting shops, and fighting officers. Several streets and metro stations were shut and major avenues, including the Champs-Elysees and the Tuileries garden, were littered with piles of debris and burned cars.
