Please tell me if it is possible to say in English:
1)thousands of protesters "came out in (?)the streets". (meaning "took to the streets"; is the preposition "in" correct?)
2)The French foreign minister "conducted" a meeting with his British counterpart. (maybe, "held"?)
Thank you for all your help.
