A "yellow vest" protester in France had his fingers ripped off during clashes at the parliament building in Paris, as the protests went into their 13th week.

Protesters wearing yellow vests take part in a demonstration by the "yellow vests" movement in Paris, France February 9, 2019.

The rallies turned violent, with clashes erupting and police resorting to tear gas to disperse the demonstrators.

Some of the paramedics served as a barrier to stop media and demonstrators from getting too close.

Police confirmed that a protester had a hand injury, but provided no further details other than to say treatment was being provided.

Such vehicles have been a common sight in Paris since deadly extremist attacks in 2015.

Castaner said: "Every day the military. protects our compatriots from the risk of terrorism. These attacks are intolerable".

More than 5,000 of Saturday's protesters were in Paris, where there were 38 arrests following widespread rioting that saw several critical governmental and private infrastructure targeted. But the Interior Ministry said the protests are much smaller than last week's.

In Rome, tens of thousands of people took to the streets to protest the course of Italy's populist government.

The yellow vest activists, who have brought hundreds of thousands onto the streets over the past three months, are now trying to achieve electoral success but the movement is politically divided and has no appointed leader.

French President Emmanuel Macron-the target of many demonstrators' anger-tried to claw back support from the public by addressing the movement's anger with a national political debate on economic injustice.

He said more than 60 MPs have received threats or had homes or offices vandalised since the start of the revolt in November, an unprecedented number in post-war France.

But a YouGov poll of 1,037 people issued on Thursday suggested that almost two out of three people in France (64 per cent) still support the movement.
