Police could not confirm French media reports that the hand of the demonstrator, who is now being treated in the hospital, was blown up by a grenade used to disperse unruly crowds.

In Paris, the protesters marched from the Champs-Elysees to the city's parliament buildings, where a violent contingent broke down barriers and threw projectiles at police.

A police source, however, said numbers were higher, with 21,000 demonstrators taking part in rallies outside Paris alone.

The "yellow vest" demonstrators, named for high-visibility vehicle jackets, began in mid-November over fuel taxes then broadened into a more general revolt against a political class they view as out of touch with the common people.

"The government has to come out of its virtual reality and enter the real world", said Annamaria Furlan, the head of the Italian Confederation of Workers' Trade Unions Cisl.

"And you cannot just say "let's go on with austerity because it's the only thing we can do". That was down from the previous week, when official figures put the number at 58,600, 10,500 in Paris.

"A Right-wing group of Yellow Vests attacked a Left-wing one, and the result was carnage", one protester who witnessed the confrontation told reporters, according to the Daily Mail Sunday.

French prosecutors are meanwhile investigating a series of attacks on homes belonging to politicians in Macron's Republic on the Move party, ranging from vandalism to arson.
