Angry Paris Protest Over Killing of Chinese Man Runs Into Second Night

Paris police faced off with protesters from the Asian community for the second night running, firing tear gas to disperse a crowd in the capital’s 19th district late on Tuesday, March 28.

The protest was sparked by the alleged police killing of a Chinese man named as Shaoyo Liu during a raid on his home on Sunday. Police say the officer was acting in self-defence after Liu wounded another officer with scissors.

Several hundred protesters gathered outside the police station in the 19th district around 11pm on Tuesday. A protest at the same location descended into rioting and led to 35 arrests the previous night. Some of those arrested remain in custody. Credit: Twitter/Thomas Vampouille via Storyful‏
