Fuel prices suspended in France after violent protests

France saw the worst violence ever in decades over fuel price hike.

France has suspended fuel price hike after violent protests in which at least 100 people were injured and more than 250 were arrested. President Emmanuel Macron’s government is considering imposing a state of emergency as tensions are rising between the metropolitan rich and rural poor. The protestors torched cars, set fires to banks and houses, battled with the police and chanted slogans criticizing Macron as the President “of the rich.” Students joined the “yellow vests” movement in large numbers. Negotiations are expected between the government and the opposition parties.
