French President Emmanuel Macron held a meeting with top security officials on Monday after police failed to control violent protests in Paris over the weekend. The so-called yellow vest protesters on Saturday set fire to stores and a bank on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The fire department said it rescued a mother and child and at least 11 people who suffered minor injuries at the bank. Several high-end boutiques along the avenue remained shut on Monday. The Paris region’s Chamber of Commerce said the violence affected 91 businesses, with 80 percent of them facing severe damages.
