Delpuech said some participants in Saturday’s riots used hammers, garden tools, bolts and aerosol cans in clashes with police.
He said some far-right or far-left radical activists were involved in the riots and “a large number” of protesters wearing yellow jackets. The jackets were a symbol of grassroots citizen movements protesting the fuel tax.
Paris prosecutor Remy Heitz said 378 people were still detained by police on Sunday night. Many of them will be tried through quick procedures on Monday and Tuesday.
French President Emmanuel Macron has asked his interior minister to consider making an “adaptation” of security procedures to try to contain ongoing protests over tax increases.
The president’s office issued a statement after an emergency meeting was held at the presidential palace on Sunday to discuss a day’s protests in which activists wore yellow jackets showering the streets of Paris.
The statement said Macron also asked Prime Minister Edouard Philippe to meet with the heads of France’s main political parties and representatives of the grassroots movement behind the protest, “with attention to dialogue.”
Plans for the previous meeting between the prime minister and the deputy of the movement collapsed last week after a request to broadcast the talks was immediately rejected.
The French interior minister and his deputy were scheduled to explain the parliamentary commission on tax protests in Paris which turned into riots.
The French Senate law commission said in a statement that the hearing set on Tuesday would focus on existing security measures to protest and the steps needed to help prevent the recurrence of damage seen on Saturday.
Paris police said 133 people were injured and 412 were arrested when protesters set fire to cars, smashed windows, looted shops, threw stones at police and marked the Arc de Triomphe with scribbles in the French capital.
The French Senate is dominated by a conservative majority that serves as an opposition to French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist party, which has a majority in the lower house of parliament.
