Eiffel Tower to close on Saturday

Paris, Dec 7 (IECurrentAffairs) Amid fears of further violence from “yellow vest” anti-government protests, the Eiffel Tower in Paris is to close on Saturday.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced that a total of 89,000 police officers will be on duty across France with amoured vehicles deployed in the capital, BBC reported.

Shops and restaurants on Paris’s Champs-Elysees and some museums have been directed to be shut by police.

Massive riots had broken out here last Saturday.

The government has said it is scrapping unpopular fuel tax increases in its budget – the original trigger for the protests.

But broader discontent with the government has spread and protests have erupted over other issues.
