Kurdish protesters clashed with law enforcement officers in Paris after a 69-year-old Frenchman shot dead three people at the Ahmet-Kaya Kurdish Cultural Center in the French capital on the afternoon of December 23. This is reported by Le Monde.

According to journalists, the protests began after the speech of the Minister of the Interior GĂ©rald Darmanin regarding the incident. The demonstrators threw stones and bolts at law enforcement officers, smashed several police cars with cobblestones and bricks, many fires broke out on the streets of Paris, several police officers were injured.

The security forces responded with tear gas. Protesters chant “PKK” (Kurdistan Workers' Party), “martyrs don't die.” The demonstrators demand a fair investigation of the incident and its qualification as a terrorist attack.

Killing Kurds in Paris: the main thing

According to media reports, 69-year-old William M. killed three people at a Kurdish cultural center and a nearby Kurdish cafe in central Paris. All three of the dead were Kurds. Three others were injured, one of them with serious injuries. The man was disarmed by passers-by while he was reloading his weapon. The shooter was arrested. Prosecutor Laura Becco said he was recently released from custody awaiting trial for a saber attack on a migrant camp in Paris a year ago. In June, he was convicted of committing violent acts with a weapon in 2016, but William M. filed an appeal.

According to Minister of the Interior Gerald Darmanin, the shooter was unlikely to have targeted the Kurds specifically, but wanted to kill just any “foreigners”. Despite his judicial background, the man was “neither known to the security services” nor “registered as a far-right”, while he was a “shooter” in a sports club, and “registered a lot of weapons”.

His motives may be determined after interrogation, “in a few hours”, as he is currently hospitalized with injuries, the minister added.

Journalists also reported that the protesters attributed the killing to the activities of the Turkish authorities, as Ankara openly persecuted representatives of the PKK and conducts activities to identify them in other countries.
