French police have fired tear gas, stun grenades and water cannon to disperse "yellow- jacket " protesters trying to breach security cordons on the Champs Elysees avenue in Paris, according to Al Jazeera.

Meanwhile, hundreds of peaceful demonstrators were present on the avenue inside a perimeter secured by police through identity checks and bag inspections.

The protests on Saturday come a week after violent clashes on the avenue last week, marked by burning barricades and vandalism which French President Emmanuel Macron compared to "war scenes".
