Rewind: Al Arabiya’s exclusive coverage during ‘Yellow Vests’ clashes in Paris
Al Arabiya’s cameras and correspondents were one of the few international media outlets that were covering from the heart of the clashes and protests between “Yellow Vests” demonstrators and Paris police on Saturday night.
Al Arabiya’s Paris Bureau Chief Hussein Kneiber reported for several uninterrupted hours during Saturday’s clashes, at one point being stuck between the police and protesters who wrestled control of the area near the Arc de Triomphe.
The protests were initially prompted two weeks ago by a fuel tax rise.
The “yellow jackets” movement now involves a broad range of demands related to France’s high cost of living.
Saturday’s violence was France’s worst riot in over a decade.
