Clashes between protesters and police broke out in Paris on Friday following a mass shooting.

An armed man opened fire in the 10th arrondissement of Paris, near the Kurdish cultural center and a hairdresser, killing three people and wounding three.

It comes 10 years after three Kurds were murdered just a few streets away.

A 69-year-old Frenchman was stopped by the police and investigations are underway to find out the reasons for the attack.

Kurdish community members gathered at the scene of the attack to show their pain and anger, saying they would be attacked again.
