On the foreign scene, French police are facing a new form of a attack during the yellow vest protests as bags of fecal matter were reportedly being thrown by demonstrators.
Spokesman for the Alliance police trade union in the southern port city of Marseille told newsmen on Saturday that bags were allegedly launched at the police soaking three officers and injuring one on the elbow.
Reports say Saturday marked the 16th straight weekend of yellow vest demonstrations in France since November, which have often seen security forces targeted with stones and other projectiles.
So far, a total of 11 persons are said to have lost their lives during the demonstrations which began over fuel taxes but mushroomed into a revolt by people in rural and small-town France against French President Emmanuel Macron.
