Paris Police Throw Tear Gas Into Crowd of Angry Protesters

Paris police faced off with protesters from the Asian community for the second night running, firing tear gas to disperse a crowd outside the police station in the 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: Axel Roux via Storyful
