Police responded with tear gas after 'Yellow Vest' protesters tried to break through the barrier in front of the National Assembly in Paris on Saturday.

Vehicles were set alight, windows smashed and buildings vandalised during the chaotic 13th consecutive week of protests.

Earlier in the day, a man demonstrating lost four fingers after a flash-ball grenade went off in his hand.

The demonstration comes just days after France's national assembly passed an 'anti-hooligan' bill targeting the 'Yellow Vest' movement. The bill makes it illegal for protesters to conceal their faces in a bid to make it easier to identify and prosecute rioters.
