A French yellow vest protester's hand was ripped apart Saturday during violent clashes in Paris as demonstrators tried to storm the French National Assembly in a 13th consecutive week of unrest.

There was also an arson attack on the home of the head of France's National Assembly, though it was not clear if the attack was linked to the protests.

They have since broadened into a revolt against the President, Emmanuel Macron, and a political class seen as out of touch with common people.

Several cars were set afire in Paris amid Yellow Vests demonstrations, according to local media.

Police used batons and fired tear gas in Paris to disperse demonstrators, some of whom threw debris at riot police.

"He wanted to bat it away so it didn't explode by his leg - and it went off when he touched it", he added.

"We mustn't give up", said pensioner Serge Mairesse, from Aubervilliers, just outside Paris.

"We put him to one side and called the street medics".

French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner went to Twitter to express his "disgust" as protesters set alight an anti-terror military vehicle.

Paris police confirmed that a demonstrator was injured in the hand and been treated by paramedics, but did not identify the victim. By 2pm officers had arrested 10 people, they added. This was the 11th time he had marched with the movement, he told AFP.

"This is the second severe injury in as many weeks and will likely inflame tensions between the government and the yellow vest movement", Beardsley reported.

About 4,000 marched in Paris, while demonstrations were held in other French cities, including Marseille, Toulouse, and Bordeaux.

Yellow vest protesters run away from tear gas fired by riot police as they keep pressure on French President Emmanuel Macron's government, for the 13th straight weekend of demonstrations, during a demonstration in Paris, France, on February 9, 2019. Recent polls show Macron's approval ratings are rising.
