French policeman pulls gun on yellow vest protesters

Violence has resumed on the streets of Paris this weekend - with a police officer filmed pulling a gun on "yellow vest" protesters.

The cop was filmed brandishing his firearm after he and fellow officers were repeatedly attacked - and as explosions apparently went off nearby.

There were reported to be 220 arrests on Saturday, the sixth weekend that the protests have been held.

They began as a reaction to rising fuel costs, but have expanded as a gesture of unhappiness about French leader Emmanuel Macron's government.
