New protests in Paris after police killing of Chinese man

PARIS >> A late-night protest broke out in central Paris over the police killing of a Chinese man in a raid at his home.

Around 200 mostly Asian protesters pulled barricades across the central Rivoli street late Wednesday, crying out “police, assassins” and tossing projectiles at riot officers. There were no arrests and no serious injuries.

The Asian community has been protesting the death of 56-year-old Shaoyo Liu since Monday.

Police called to Liu’s building over reports of a man with a knife broke down the door of his apartment and shot him to death. Police say he attacked an officer with scissors. His daughter disputes the account, and says he was merely cooking when the family heard pounding on the door. The family has appealed for calm.
