Not With A Bang But A Whimper? French 'Yellow Vest' Protestors' Numbers Shrink

Turnout at “yellow vest” protests across France fell on Saturday to its lowest level yet.

The often violent and destructive protests, a backlash against high living costs, have lasted nearly four months.

Reuters reports some protesters staged a “flashmob” at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport.

Across the country, the French Interior Ministry says some 28,600 people turned out overall, with 3,000 of those in Paris.

That's down from 39,300 across France the previous Saturday.
