France election: Was Macron’s forecast of civil war correct? Massive protests after far-right wins first round

Paris: Dozens of protesters gathered in the French capital on Sunday evening following the initial results of the first round of a parliamentary election which tipped Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Rally (RN) as the winner. Protesters set off flares in Paris as they marched through the city’s streets, past smoking tear gas canisters and flaming trash cans– a situation that French President Emmanuel Macron warned earlier last week. Macron had said that a victory for the far left or the far right in this month’s snap election could spark a “civil war.”
