The Eiffel Tower in Paris is to close on Saturday amid fears of further street violence from “yellow vest” anti-government protests. Across France, 89,000 police officers will be on duty and armoured vehicles will be deployed in the capital, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced. Police have urged shops and restaurants on Paris’s Champs-Elysees to shut and some museums will also be closed. Paris saw some of the worst rioting in decades last Saturday.
