French protester loses hand to flashbang

The cause of the injury has not been confirmed but eyewitness claim he picked up a tear gas grenade that exploded in his hand?

Police fired tear gas and flash grenades to deter protesters, while demonstrators threw the canisters back towards police and lobbed signs and pieces of boarding as projectiles.

At least 10 protesters were arrested after scuffles broke out with police near the Palais Bourbon, where the National Assembly meets.

An eyewitness told the AFP that the grenade which obliterated the protester's hand was sacked by police to disperse the crowd.

The Paris Gilet Jaunes demonstrator was left bleeding heavily as violent protests continue to grip the French capital. "He wanted to bat it away so it didn't explode by his leg and it went off when he touched it".

Paris police said the man had lost four fingers. This was the 11th time he had marched with the movement, he told AFP.

"It's all very good, the great debate, but we want something concrete: fewer taxes, more purchasing power".

The protests have brought hundreds of thousands of people out onto the streets all over France.

Thousands of protesters turned out in other parts of France, including the port cities of Marseille and Montpellier and also in Bordeaux and Toulouse in the southwest.

A auto, motorbikes and multiple trash bins were set ablaze as the protest moved toward the city's Invalides monument but France's Interior Ministry said this week's protest was significantly smaller than last week's.

There were no official attendance figures, but local media reported turnout as high as 200,000 people.

But a YouGov poll of 1,037 people issued on Thursday suggested that almost two out of three people in France (64 percent) still support the movement. Government and opposition politicians have condemned the attacks.
