France: Police aim flash-ball at journalist during 'yellow vest' protest

Police aimed a flash-ball device at a journalist during a 'yellow vest' protest in Rouen on Saturday.
During the protest, police and demonstrators faced off and clashed with one another. During one tense moment, journalist Simon Louvet was pushed away by riot police who pointed at him with a hand-held, non-lethal weapon known as a flash-ball.
The 'Yellow Vest' movement emerged after French President Emmanuel Macron announced hikes in fuel taxes to encourage a transition towards greener energy.
The French government have now suspended the prices hikes; however, protests have continued.
