Several armored vehicles belonging to the French Gendarmerie – the military police – have arrived in Paris, which is bracing for another wave of Yellow Vest protests.

It comes after Prime Minister Edouard Philippe on Thursday promised the hardware, as well as 8,000 additional officers for the capital and 89,000 nationwide for reinforcement. The deployment of the armored vehicles in an urban area is the first since 2005 when riots broke out in the Paris suburbs.
