French Fuel Protests

Demonstrations in France over rising fuel prices are continuing to disrupt vehicles entering and exiting France.  400 people have been injured, officials say, as protests spilled into a fifth day.

The French interior ministry said that nearly 300 protesters were questioned, with 157 among them taken into custody.  Some 288,000 people have taken part in these protests, the French ministry reports.  The demonstrators, known as the “yellow vests”, have been setting up roadblocks across the country.
