PARIS/BRUSSELS (AA) - French police used pepper spray against Yellow Vest protesters along the Champs-Elysees in the capital Paris on Saturday.

The Yellow Vests, protesting rising oil prices and deteriorating economic conditions, started to come to the iconic avenue on early Saturday.

The police allowed the protesters onto the street after doing body searches.

During Saturday's protests, the tension between demonstrators and the police flared up from time to time.

Meanwhile, French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said at least 481 people have been arrested so far during Yellow Vest protests on Saturday.

Philippe added that 211 people have been remanded in custody.

Meanwhile, police in Brussels, Belgium, home to NATO and EU institutions, arrested around 50 protesters ahead of the Yellow Vest protests.

Ilse Van de Keere, a police spokesperson, said that arrests were carried out around the Brussels central train station and the Schuman area.

Police in Brussels took tight security measures in the city center and the area where the EU Commission and Council are located.
