China complains to France after Chinese tourists hurt in riots

China’s Consulate General in Marseille has lodged a complaint with France after a bus carrying a Chinese tour group in the southern city was attacked, resulting in minor injuries, according to a statement from China’s Consular Affairs Office on Sunday.

The formal complaint from the Consulate General urged France to ensure the safety of Chinese citizens and their property, the statement added.

The incident occurred on Thursday when rioters targeted the bus, as reported by state broadcaster CCTV. These acts of violence have been occurring in French cities in recent days following the police shooting of a teenager of North African descent. The Consular Office statement confirmed that the Chinese tourists have already left France.

In light of the ongoing riots across the country, the Consular office statement advised Chinese citizens in France or planning to visit France to be more cautious and vigilant, emphasizing the need to strengthen preventive measures.

Although tens of thousands of police had been deployed in cities across France after the teenager’s funeral, resulting in less intense rioting on Saturday, there were still some tensions in central Paris and sporadic clashes in Nice, Strasbourg, and Marseille, according to a RushHourDaily report.
