VIDEO: Watch: Hundreds march in Paris in tribute to Kurds shot dead

Hundreds of people marched in Paris on Monday to pay tribute to three Kurds shot dead in the French capital last week.

The suspect, a 69-year-old French man, has confessed to a “pathological” hatred of foreigners and spent almost a day in a psychiatric facility before being returned to police custody on Sunday, authorities said.

The shooting at a Kurdish cultural center and a nearby hair salon on Friday sparked panic in the city’s bustling 10th district, home to numerous shops and restaurants and a large Kurdish population.

Three others were injured in the attack, but none were in a life-threatening condition, with one out of hospital.

The violence has revived the trauma of three unsolved killings of Kurds in 2013 that many blame on Turkey.

Many in the Kurdish community have expressed anger at French security services, saying they had done too little to prevent the shooting.
