French-Chinese community protest after police shoot man dead”

Although neighbors who called the authorities told police they'd heard screams and the police involved reportedly claimed Liu tried to attack them with scissors, the family's lawyer disputed this.

With candles spelling "violence" lining the road, scores of protesters broke down barricades, threw projectiles and set fire to a vehicle during violence that lasted several hours.

Monday night about 150 people gathered outside the police commissariat in Paris's 19th district to protest the death of a Chinese man killed by police at his home.

The man's children said that police did not give sufficient warning before breaking down the apartment door and opening fire.

"The security of all Chinese nationals in France is a priority of the authorities", Romain Nadal, a French Foreign Ministry spokesperson, said Tuesday.

At least one auto was set on fire, as emergency services struggled to put out the blaze out while being bombarded.

The police said the officer who fired the shots acted in self-defence after the 56-year-old father of five attacked another officer with a knife.

Ms Chunying said: "We hope that our compatriots in France will make their complaints known in a reasonable and legal manner".

"He didn't injure anyone, ' Job said, adding that the man had been 'trimming fish with a pair of scissors" when the police came to the door. The police officer in question says any injury inflicted was accidental and an investigation is under way. Chen Xiaoqi, the chairman of the Qingtian Association in France, said most of those involved in the protest were young people.
