A man's hand was blown off by a police grenade in Paris on Saturday during the 13th straight week of Yellow Vest protests.  Capturing the graphic aftermath of the incident was Ruptly - the video agency of Russia's RT.  The Ruptly crew who filmed the horrific aftermath of the blast injury say they rushed over after hearing an explosion, and found the injured protester surrounded by paramedics. Police fired tear gas and flash grenades to deter protesters, while demonstrators threw the canisters back towards police and lobbed signs and pieces of boarding as projectiles. An eyewitness told the AFP that the grenade which obliterated the protester’s hand was fired by police to disperse the crowd. -RT GRAPHIC:  According to this tweet it was a photographer who got caught in the crossfire https://t.co/K9zoC5zrFP pic.twitter.com/iDiU7mQDlU — Nick Monroe (@nickmon1112) February 9, 2019 Higher resolution but blurred:  #Update: Horrific photos of a man's hand torn off by police fire at the #GiletsJaunes protests in #Paris today. #France, the #yellowvests endure this abhorrent treatment yet the global #media is silent.
