PARIS | The Latest: Protests underway on Champs-Elysees
PARIS — The Latest on anti-government protests in France and neighboring countries (all times local):
A crowd of “yellow vest” protesters is marching down the Champs-Elysees avenue in central Paris surrounded by exceptional police security amid fears of new violence.
Hundreds of people gathered early Saturday around the Arc de Triomphe, which was damaged in rioting a week ago. They then started walking peacefully down the avenue, lined with high-end shops normally bustling before the Christmas holidays but boarded
up this Saturday amid worries of more looting or other damage.
