French police have clashed with "yellow vests" protesters in Paris's Champs Elysees avenue.
It came shortly after president Emmanuel Macron presided over the Bastille Day military parade alongside other European leaders.
The Paris boulevard had been reopened to traffic but a few hundred protesters from the grassroots movement immediately tried to occupy it.
