One dies as 120,000 ‘yellow vests’ demonstrators protested in France against rising fuel costs
Reading Time: 1 minute

A protester has died in an accident and dozens have been injured as demonstrators angry at rising fuel prices disrupt traffic across France.

The female protester was struck after a driver surrounded by demonstrators panicked and accelerated.

BBC said some 120,000 “yellow vests”, so-called after the high-visibility jackets they are required to carry in their cars, have gathered in 2,000 locations.

They accuse President Emmanuel Macron of abandoning “the little people”.

Mr Macron has not so far commented on the protests, some of which have seen demonstrators call for him to resign.
