Many tourist attractions in Paris to be closed on Saturday amid more street riot fears

Eiffel Tower

Several tourist attractions in Paris will stay closed on Saturday for the possibility of more riots and violence at anti-government protests.

Authorities across France are holding emergency meetings and deploying tens of thousands of police and security forces.

Several tourist attractions such as Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysees, museums, opera houses and shops in Paris announced they would close Saturday as a precaution because the city endured some of the worst riotings in decades last Saturday.

The government has said it is scrapping the fuel tax increases in its budget - the main reason that started the protests but the yellow vest protesters said it is not enough. They issued more than 40 demands to government including a minimum pension, widespread changes to the tax system, and a reduction in the retirement age.
