Macron Lies Low as French Anger Grows Over Rogue Bodyguard

French President Emmanuel Macron remained out of sight on Monday as his team tried to contain the fallout after a controversial aide was caught on camera striking a protester at a May 1 rally in Paris.

After going to ground all weekend, the head of state canceled plans to join crowds watching Wednesday’s stage of the Tour de France bike race, though he will still travel to the French Pyrenees that day for his next scheduled public appearance. Macron had brushed away questions on the issue during a visit to the south-west of France last Thursday. Source Bloomberg
