PARIS – Thousands of protesters have gathered in Paris to demand answers and justice one week after a Chinese man was killed at his home by the police, a case that has provoked anger in the French capital's Asian community.
Crying relatives holding portraits of 56-year-old Shaoyo Liu led the downtown rally at the Place de la Republique on Sunday. Other participants held white flowers.
A group of a few hundred Chinese youth and police officers clashed as the rally ended.
Police called to Liu's building over reports of a man with a knife burst into his apartment on March 26. Police say he attacked an officer with scissors before another officer fatally shot him.
Relatives are disputing the police account; they say Liu was holding kitchen shears because he was cooking.
