One of President Macron's top officials is 'evacuated' after masked thugs use a FORKLIFT to break into a French government ministry during Yellow Vest riots as chaos spills into EIGHTH weekend

Masked thugs broke into a French government ministry tonight - leading to the 'emergency evacuation' of government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux during a day of Yellow Vests rioting.

The 41-year-old, who is one of President Emmanuel Macron's most senior lieutenants, was rushed to safety by police during the drama.

Dramatic footage shows how a forklift taken from a nearby construction site was used to smash through the entrance of the building.

'Around fifteen masked people dressed in black broke into Mr Griveaux's office at about 4.30 on Saturday,' said an investigating source.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This feels like a staged event to discredit the Yellow Vest movement.
