Anticipating a fourth straight weekend of violent protests, France on Friday mobilized armored vehicles and thousands of police, cordoned off Paris' broad boulevards and made plans to shut down tourist sites like the Eiffel Tower and Louvre. Some 8,000 officers and 12 armored vehicles were deployed in Paris alone, where shops have been boarded up and sites like the Eiffel Tower closed, BBC News reports.

The heavy security put central Paris in a virtual lockdown Saturday against what the interior minister called "radicalized and rebellious people."
