    French police used water cannons and tear gas to disperse anti-fuel tax protesters who were rallying against rising fuel prices and a planned fuel tax in Paris on Saturday.
    A vehicle and a tent of a nearby café were set on fire, while people barricaded behind pieces of furniture as they tried to hide from water cannons and march further.
    Some were seen shaking a traffic light in a bid to break it, while others were turning what seemed to be a vehicle over to use as a barricade against police.
    The "yellow vest" movement has grown in the past weeks, as the government plans a tax increase on fuel, including gasoline and diesel, beginning on January 1, 2019 to promote environmentally friendly practices.
