The number of those detained in Saturday's yellow vest rallies in Paris has risen to 94, the BFMTV broadcaster reported, citing local police
Earlier in the day, media reported about 64 people detained in the rallies.
This is already the 18th consecutive weekend of rallies, which started in mid-November over the government's plans to raise fuel taxes. While the French government abandoned its plans to raise fuel taxes and introduced other measures to improve the country's socioeconomic situation, protesters continue to take to the streets across France every weekend to express their wider discontent with the government's policies.
