France postpones hike in fuel tax amid protests

Fuel tax rises which have led to weeks of violent protests in France have now been postponed for six months.
 
The move was announced in a televised address by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, who said anyone would have "to be deaf or blind" not to hear or see the anger.
 
The protests have hit major cities, causing damage and disruption over the last three weekends.
 
The so-called 'yellow vest protests' have now grown to reflect more widespread anger at the government.
