Protests banned in some places and Paris police chief replaced after Yellow Vest weekend violence

The French government said Monday it would replace the under-fire head of police in Paris following another weekend of riots that saw shops and restaurants torched and looted on the Champs-Elysées. Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said Michel Delpuech, 66, who has been in the job since April 2017, would be replaced on Wednesday by Didier Lallement, the top police official in the southwest region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine.
