PARIS (Reuters) - The “yellow vest” protest movement will have a severe impact on the French economy, Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Sunday.

“We must expect a new slowdown of economic growth at year-end due to the “yellow vest” protests,” Le Maire told Reuters television as he visited shops and restaurants that had been vandalized on Saturday.
