France protests: Fuel tax rises in 2019 budget dropped

Fuel tax rises which sparked weeks of violent protests in France have now been dropped from next year’s budget, the government has announced.

The move was announced by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, who a day earlier had only promised to postpone them for six months.

The “gilets jaunes” (yellow vest) protests have hit major cities over the past three weekends.

Further demonstrations were planned for this weekend.
