Violence linked to the "yellow vest" protests sweeping France are a "catastrophe" for the nation's economy, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire warned Sunday.

"It's a catastrophe for commerce, it's a catastrophe for our economy," Le Maire told reporters as he visited shops in Paris hit by looting during anti-government riots a day earlier.
