France tightens up security for 'yellow vest' protests

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Soldiers patrolled the streets around Notre Dame Cathedral on Saturday (April 20), as Paris geared up for the 23rd round of 'yellow vest' protests, in the wake of the fire that ravaged the cathedral's roof.

The French interior minister warned on Friday (April 19) that violence could flare up on Saturday, as authorities banned marches around the cathedral.

Christophe Castaner told a news conference that more than 60,000 police officers and gendarmes would be deployed for the protests and that domestic intelligence services had informed him of a potential return of rioters intent on wreaking havoc in Paris, Toulouse, Montpellier and Bordeaux, in a repeat of violent protests on March 16.
