Paris riot police clashed on Saturday near the famous Champs-Elysees boulevard with "yellow vest" protesters who are staging another weekend of demonstrations against French President Emmanuel Macron.

Police fired tear gas in a bid to push back hundreds of protesters gathered around the shopping boulevard and the Arc de Triomphe monument, AFP journalists reported.

Police estimated that around 1,500 protesters had gathered in the area.
