Coronavirus: More than 150 arrested during first yellow vest protest since France lockdown lifted

Police in Paris have arrested more than 150 people during the first yellow vest protest since the start of France’s coronavirus outbreak.

Officers in riot gear have already fired tear gas at demonstrators along the Avenue de Wagram in Paris’s 17th arrondissement, while another march takes place outside the capital’s stock exchange.
