French police brace for New Year's Eve unrest

France is deploying more than 147,000 security forces nationwide to gird for New Year's Eve unrest as yellow vest protesters prepare to join the public revelry

The Interior Ministry said in a statement issued Sunday that the heavy security measures are needed because of a "high terrorist threat" and concerns about "non-declared protests."

Previous New Year's Eves in France have produced burned cars and other disorder.
