the Photos and video footage on social media shows that the entire façade of the building, where the bakery is located, is the crash together. Bricks and broken glass are scattered everywhere in the street.

- All the windows in the apartment are exploded, all the doors are blown of their hinges. In order to get out of my room, were I have to step on the door. The children were in a panic, says Claire Sallavuard, that is adjacent to the bakery, to Le Monde.

the Explosion has caused concern in many places, as the authorities fear new violent demonstrations in the weekend of the so-called yellow jackets. Over 5000 policemen are udkommanderet various strategic locations in the city.

The Yellow Jackets began their protests in mid-november. The demonstrations began as peaceful protests against the high cost of living. However, they have since taken the form of a more general dissatisfaction with president Emmanuel Macron and developed violent.

The French interior minister, Christophe Castaner, informs, according to news agency AP, that the 'situation is under control'.
