Kurds have been attacked in Paris and their anger is growing.

Kurds in Paris are demanding answers following the killing of three members of their community on Friday.

Anti-racism groups and thousands of other people joined rallies in the capital that sometimes escalated into violence.

French police arrested a 69-year-old man in connection with the gun attack.

The protesters’ main concern is why the shooting has been declared a racially motivated incident, instead of a terror attack.

But who is to blame for the rise in prejudice against minorities?
