[Ed. – Violence intensifying.]
A fireman, who joined with the Yellow Vest protest movement in France, has been shot in the back of the head by French police causing severe brain injuries.
Olivier Beziade, father-of-three children, was shot from behind by a police officer using a controversial flash ball gun.
Beziade can be seen wearing a high-visibility jacket synonymous with the Yellow Vests, as he lies motionless on the floor.
Videos across social media show Beziade being treated by medics as he lays on the floor covered in blood.
His family members say he has a ‘severe brain injury’ and is currently in an induced coma in hospital.
French President Emmanuel Macron yesterday deployed riot police armed with “anti-terrorist” semi-automatic assault rifles, using live ammunition, to deal with the Yellow Vest protesters on the streets of France.
The Yellow Vest movement is only intensifying as Macron’s administration struggles to quell the uprising.
