More than 400 hurt in French fuel price protests - minister

Emmanuel Macron said protesters have a

On Sunday, French Interior Minister Cristophe Castaner said that over 400 people have suffered injuries in France in the protests against fuel prices hikes.

Police said three of the injured are in serious condition.

French officials say over a quarter of a million people across the country took part in protests against rising fuel taxes over the weekend.

"He needs to think about the poor as well", said Andre, a 38-year-old with no driver's license who nonetheless joined a blockade in Dole, eastern France. A police officer and a firefighter who intervened when protesters attacked a closed service station were among the eight.

Demonstrators gather to protest fuel taxes in Paris, France, Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2018.

Police questioned 282 protesters in total, 73 during the night, of which 157 were taken into custody.

In the eastern Savoie region, a 63-year-old woman was killed when a mother trying to take her daughter to see a doctor panicked after protesters surrounded their auto, and suddenly accelerated into the crowd.

In Paris, a group of some 50 protesters were yelling "Macron resign!" on the Champs Elysee, though police were stopping them from heading toward the nearby Elysee Palace, the president's residence.

Dozens of people were also injured, as drivers tried to get around stoppages, after protestors in a grassroots protest movement dubbed the "yellow vests" took to motorway sliproads, tunnel entrances or airport access roads.

The protesters are nicknamed "yellow vests" for the high-visibility jackets they wear.

On Saturday a female protester was accidentally killed when a woman driver caught up in the blockade accelerated in panic and crashed into the crowd. However, protesters and their supporters have voiced anger about other issues, too, including diminishing buying power.

The planned increase in fuel taxes, notably for diesel fuel, spoke to those French who feel the president has asked ordinary citizens to make the largest efforts in his bid to transform France. French Transport Minister Elisabeth Borne said the tax on diesel will increase by 6.5 cents per liter in January 2019, while the tax on gasoline is set to increase by 2.9 cents.

Many drivers see them as emblematic of a presidency seen as disconnected from day-to-day economic difficulties.

Robert Tichit, 67, a retiree, referred to the president as "King Macron".
