BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – A special unit of the French Police, the Brigade Anti-Criminalite (BAC), dressed as protesters, tried to mingle with the crowd to detain ‘Yellow Vests’ in Paris on Saturday.
Police pepper sprayed a Redfish cameraman while he was filming the detention.
A protester was seen bleeding heavily on the face as police fired rubber bullets at demonstrators.
This is the fourth week of ‘Yellow Vest’ protests, which turned into the worst urban rioting in decades in the French capital.
The ‘Yellow Vest’ movement emerged last month after French President Emmanuel Macron announced hikes in fuel taxes to encourage a transition towards greener energy.
The French government have now suspended the prices hikes but protests continue nevertheless.
