PARIS, France - French police have fired tear gas across the Champs-Elysees Avenue in Paris and protesters have scuffled with police outside the city's Opera house amid the fifth straight weekend of protests by the "yellow vests" movement.

Saturday saw mostly peaceful anti-government protests in the French capital but violence broke out at its margins, as groups of yellow vests tried to break through police lines as they protested France's high cost of living.

There were clashes at Opera, where some demonstrators had gathered to voice their grievances. And French police unleashed repeated discharges of tear gas along Paris' premier shopping street, the Champs-Elysees, although the back-and-forth fell short of previous violence that had scarred the avenue with broken windows and looted stores.

French police have detained 85 people in Paris in Saturday's protests.

The movement, initially against a rise in fuel taxes, now addresses other issues, including education reforms.
