    Protests against a proposed fuel tax have forced President Emmanuel Macron to postpone his plans to hike diesel and petrol prices. Nevertheless, clashes with police entered a fourth weekend in France, with some radicals even calling for Macron's resignation.

    Looters broke into an Apple store in Bordeaux on Saturday night as violent anti-government protests rampaged through the country.

    A clip that hit close to one million views on Twitter shows ugly scenes in which dozens of looters grab Apple laptops and iPhones off shelves and tables. Some of those involved in the plunder can be seen donning yellow vests, a symbol of the large, ongoing riots in France.
