A French man fatally shot three people in Paris on Friday at a Kurdish cultural center in what authorities said was an attack on foreigners. Protests broke out in the neighborhood after the shooting.

The attack took place around noon in the 10th arrondissement at the center and in a hair salon and a restaurant nearby. The 69-year-old suspect was arrested shortly after.
