Macron minister sparks outrage after comparing Yellow Vests’ actions to a ‘terror attack’

Mr Castaner made the controversial comments as he visited the office of Romain Grau, an MP loyal to French President Emmanuel Macron, after it was set alight by balaclava-clad rioters on the sidelines of a yellow vest rally last weekend. While the attack on Mr Grau’s office has widely been branded “an act of vandalism,” Mr Castaner reclassified the incident into an “attentat” – the French word used to describe a terrorist attack. Mr Grau, a member of Mr Macron’s centrist La République en Marche (LREM) party, was in his office in the southern city of Perpignan when a mob of yellow vests stormed into the room, smashing windows and hurling a burning projectile inside. The MP managed to put out the flames and escape.
