The French government said Thursday that the death toll associated with the anti-government “yellow jackets” protests rose to nine as protesters continued to block traffic.

“There was a ninth death this morning in Agen near a field, he was one of the “Yellow Jacket” protester, he was protesting outside but he did not follow the road safety instructions,” Interior Minister Christophe Castaner told reporters.

Local officials said the newest victim, a 60-year-old man, was hit by a truck near a highway gathered by protesters.

Most of the deaths occurred as a result of road accidents because protesters closed the fields and destroyed road toll booths.

Yellow jackets began their demonstrations in mid-November to protest the increase in fuel tax.

But the movement then developed into wider protests over President Emmanuel Macaron’s economic reforms. Protests in Paris this month were marred by violence and vandalism.
