China demands safety for nationals in France after Chinese man was shot dead in his home by French police

The Chinese Foreign Ministry has summoned a French diplomat after a Chinese national was killed by French police in Paris, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a daily news briefing on Tuesday.

Hua asked French authorities to investigate the incident thoroughly and ensure the safety of Chinese nationals on French soil.

Later on Tuesday, Reuters reported that French police opened an investigation into the incident.

On Monday, the Chinese embassy in France released a statement calling upon French police “to identify the truth” as soon as possible.

Liu Shaoyo, a 56-year-old Chinese man, was shot dead on Sunday by French police who arrived at his home over a “family dispute”. The French police claimed that their officer shot Liu in self defense, saying he was holding scissors. However, his family said he had only been cutting fish when the officers arrived.
