Police fired tear gas at 'Yellow Vest' protesters in Nantes on Saturday as country-wide demonstrations entered their tenth consecutive week in France.

The 'Yellow Vest' movement emerged after French President Emmanuel Macron announced hikes in fuel price taxes to encourage a transition towards greener energy.

The French government has now suspended the prices hikes, however, protests have continued.
