France: Tensions flare in Paris after police kill man

France, Paris
March 27, 2017 at 23:01 GMT -00:00 · Published

Tensions flared in Paris when more than 200 protesters rallied in the French capital, Monday, to denounce police brutality. The protest came a day after a 56-year-old Shaoyo Liu of Chinese ethnicity was allegedly killed by the police who were called to Liu's house following a family disagreement.

The demonstrators threw objects at the riot police and set alight cars. Members of the Chinese community in Paris participated in the protest.

The police claim that Liu attacked one of the officers in the throat with a pair of scissors. However, Liu's family claimed that Liu had scissors because he was cutting fish that he was cooking.

Last month, Paris witnessed a wave of protests against police brutality, which were instigated by news that a French police officer was charged with the rape and abuse of a young black man, identified as 'Theo', during a routine ID check.
