Huge explosion rocks Paris as Yellow Vest activists gather – many injured

The blast was heard in the centre of the city as dawn broke over the French capital. French police have confirmed at least 36 casualties and are advising people to stay away from the area, one of Paris’s biggest shopping districts. Five of the injured have been described as critical by Paris fire service officials. Emergency services, including police who had been securing nearby areas against the Yellow Vest protestors, rushed to Rue de Treviso in Paris’s 9th District, a short walk from the Louvre Museum. Paris was already on high alter and crawling with police as the city braces itself for another weekend of potentially violent Yellow Vest protests.
