Thousands of people took to the streets of Paris on Saturday, as 'Yellow Vest' protests entered the ninth week in a row.

Demonstrators were seen marching though the French capital, singing national songs, burning flares and chanting slogans against France's President Emmanuel Macron's policies. Tear gas was deployed, as protesters were rallying at the Arc de Triomphe.

Last Saturday, around 50,000 protesters demonstrated on the streets of various French cities.

In Paris, French government spokesperson Benjamin Griveaux was evacuated from his offices as protesters seized an abandoned forklift and rammed it into the building's front entrance.
