French paramedics, students join ‘yellow vest’ protests

Protest against fuel price rise gets wider with ambulance workers and students joining ‘Yellow vest’ rallies.

The leaders of the so-called yellow vest protests in France are due to meet President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday.

They have been agitating over rising fuel prices, but the demonstrations have evolved into wider criticism of the president’s policies.
