The journalist who discovered Macron’s whereabouts is arrested

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Journalist Taha Bouhafs was arrested after posting on social media yesterday that French President Emmanuel Macron was in a theater in Paris, where dozens of protesters later gathered, French media reported.

“I am at the Bouffes du Nord theater. Three rows behind the president of France. Some protesters are here and they are inviting everyone here. Preparations are underway. There may be an event tonight,” Bouhafs wrote.

A group of protesters then gathered outside the theater after it was reported on social media that President Macron was inside the Bouffes du Nord theater in Paris.

French security forces evacuated country president Emmanuel Macron from the theater over anti-government protesters’ attempt to get inside.

The government’s announced pension reform plan in France has triggered protests and strikes since December 5 last year.
