Luxury boutiques and restaurants in fancy neighborhoods and near the French presidential palace erected barricades and boarded up windows on Friday, as Paris hunkered down for another wave of potentially violent protests on Saturday.

 The Eiffel Tower, opera house, and Louvre were among dozens of museums and tourist sites in the city that will close on Saturday to pre-empt feared attacks by “yellow vest” protesters.

Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said the three-week-old “yellow vest” revolt had “created a monster” and vowed police would have no tolerance for violence, with much of Paris in lockdown and tens of thousands of police deployed nationwide.

Some 89,000 policemen will be on duty across the country to forestall a repeat of last Saturday's destructive mayhem in exclusive central districts of Paris.

The police in the capital will be backed up by armored vehicles equipped to clear barricades.
