France is stepping up its security ahead of a planned 'gilets jaunes' ('yellow vest') protest on Saturday.
Axar.az reports citing Euronews.
Prime Minister Édouard Philippe said 89,000 members of the security forces would be deployed across the country ahead of the demonstration, including 8,000 in Paris.
Philippe added that about 10 armoured vehicles would also be used for the first time since 2005 when riots broke out in Paris.
Authorities announced they will close museums and tourist sites and have urged shops to close on the Champs Elysees boulevard on Saturday, to prevent violent scenes.
