    The "yellow vests" protests against Emmanuel Macron's policies have been going on in France for 9 weeks now, despite authorities taking steps to calm down the public and averting unpopular reforms on fuel taxes.

    AFP has published a GoPro camera video filmed by Xavier Léoty, one of its freelance photojournalists, who was highlighting the ongoing "yellow vest" protests on 14 January, depicting how he was shot in the knee by a low-velocity weapon, which usually stands for handguns or crossbows. It's unclear who shot him, but several protesters can be seen rushing to help the journalist.
