France's Asian community speaks out after string of muggings

The recent mass mugging of Chinese tourists aboard their bus near Paris made headlines worldwide. Asian tourists are often preyed upon because they tend to carry valuables and large amounts of cash. But it's also French nationals of Asian origin who are regular targets, especially Asian residents in parts of Paris and its suburbs. Recently, the deadly beating of a Chinese shopkeeper triggered protests by members of this community, who are now calling for better police protection.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett, Aline Schmidt and Claire Pryde.
