French PM to Meet ‘Yellow Vest’ Protesters

President Emmanuel Macron has asked Prime Minister Édouard Philippe to cross the barricades in an attempt to halt the most destructive demonstrations to hit Paris in a decade. More than 400 were arrested and 133 injured over the weekend as tens of thousands of anti-government protesters clashed with riot police and some set buildings and cars on fire. The diplomatic approach to the third straight week of demonstrations — sparked by a hike in fuel prices — is a shift away from a proposed state of emergency that was floated earlier.
