Over 40 protesters detained at Saturday riots in Paris

Yellow vests protesters Yellow Vests Rally Hits Paris as Protests Continue for 13th Week Sputnik

'A right-wing group of yellow vests attacked a left-wing one, and the result was carnage, ' said a protester who witnessed the violence.

Police said the injured protester lost four fingers as police swooped in to stop protesters from breaching the parliament's exterior. The demonstrations spiraled into clashes with the police and a protest against the country's leadership, whom protestors accuse of ineffective government and taking insufficient measures to fight poverty.

The movement of the "yellow jackets" holds protest rally for the 13th time, as usual, at the end of the week.

In another incident, a protester's hand was severely injured when he tried to pick up a so-called "sting-ball grenade" used by police to disperse crowds with tear gas.

More than 5,000 of Saturday's protesters were in Paris, where there were 38 arrests following widespread rioting that saw several critical governmental and private infrastructure targeted.

About 55,000 protesters were involved in this week's yellow vest demonstrations.

"The opportunity will come on May 26 (the election day) when finally, the French people will be able to take back control of their future, destiny, (and) pride, which are poorly represented by a character like Macron", Salvini said in the video.

In Paris on Saturday, the protesters marched from the Champs-Elysees to the city's parliament buildings, where a violent contingent broke down barriers and threw projectiles at police.

Police say the demonstrator, whose condition isn't now known, is being treated by emergency workers.

They first started demonstrating against a now scrapped fuel tax rise but have grown into a wider protest against Mr Macron, whose approval rating has struggled to get above 30 per cent after he was dubbed the "president of the rich".

French prosecutors are meanwhile investigating a series of attacks on homes belonging to politicians in Macron's Republic on the Move party, ranging from vandalism to arson.
