Paris shooting: Three killed after gunman opens fire at Kurdish cultural centre

Three people have been killed after a gunman opened fire at a Kurdish cultural centre and nearby cafe in Paris, prompting clashes between police and protesters on nearby streets.

French President Emmanuel Macron described it as a “heinous” attack on France’s Kurds and said his thoughts were with the victims.

Prosecutors said they were investigating whether there was a racist motive behind the attack.

A 69-year-old man has been arrested.
