Multiple Dead and Injured After Freak Fireworks Explosion . The State Coordination of Civil Protection (CEPC) confirmed the death of the people, derived from an accident in the vicinity of a chapel where they had stored the pyrotechnics for the festivities.

The explosion came as Paris and other cities around France were bracing on Saturday for a ninth week of protests by the “Yellow Vests” movement, which had been marked by episodes of violence and vandalism of high-end stores. But there was no indication that the explosion on Saturday had anything to do with the protests.

The Yellow Vests are protesting the social and economic policies of President Emmanuel Macron, whom they consider to be out of touch with their everyday needs.

But the demonstrations have also come to express a wider discontent with the political and media elites. On Saturday, demonstrations were expected in Paris and in Bourges, a much smaller town in central France that some protest organizers had chosen because it was closer to the regions where many of the Yellow Vests live.

After the large explosion in Paris, pictures on social media showed a blackened store front at the corner of Rue Trévise and Rue Sainte-Cécile, in the 9th Arrondissement of Paris, with windows blown out, debris strewn around the street and fires still burning.

Other images showed damaged buildings and broken windows stretching for several blocks.
