Eiffel Tower to close amid riot fears
The Eiffel Tower in Paris is to close on Saturday amid fears of further street violence from "yellow vest" anti-government protests.
Across France, 89,000 police officers will be on duty and armoured vehicles will be deployed in the capital, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced.
Police have urged shops and restaurants on Paris's Champs-Elysees to shut and some museums will also be closed.
Paris saw some of the worst rioting in decades last Saturday, BBC reports.
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.
