More than 220 people were arrested in Paris Saturday as "yellow vest" protesters assembled for the third straight weekend. Authorities say around 100 people were injured when some demonstrators rioted, vandalizing the Arc de Triomphe, attacking police, and damaging and looting cars and stores. The French government may impose a state of emergency. French President Emmanuel Macron plans to initiate a dialogue with the yellow vests, but a government representative said policy changes are not being considered. The demonstrators are angry about Macron's presidency, rising taxes, and high costs of living more broadly.
