Africans protest in China as man dies in police custody

More than 100 Africans protested on Tuesday outside a police station in China’s southern Guangdong province after an African man died in police custody, state news agency Xinhua said, citing local authorities.

The protest in Guangdong’s capital Guangzhou, which brought traffic to a halt, lasted for two hours on Tuesday, Xinhua said, citing an official from the Guangzhou Municipal Public Security Bureau.

Xinhua said the dead African man, whose identity has not been confirmed, “suddenly fell unconscious” at a police station on Monday afternoon “and died after medical efforts failed”, Xinhua said, citing police.

The African man was taken into the police station for questioning on Monday after he had a “physical altercation” with another person, the owner of an electric bicycle who had given the African man a ride as a passenger on Monday afternoon, Xinhua said. Both of them disagreed over payment.

The protest comes ahead of a summit between China and Africa that China is expected to host in July, and amid a crackdown by Beijing and Shanghai on “illegal foreigners”. In late May, Beijing launched a 100-day campaign to “clean out” foreigners living or working illegally in the city and has stepped up police checks on expatriates.

The Xinhua report said police have launched an investigation into the death and that “police in Guangzhou have called for foreigners to abide by Chinese law and refrain from disturbing public order”.

      Africans riot wherever they go. Coincidence? I think not. Hope China will take more of you lot so you’d leave Europe alone

        straycatishungry i think you are very stupid who ask you about Europe as your name suggest i think you must be a hungry man Africans in europe are not the cause of ur hunger so leave them alone and let talk about the murder of an african by the chinese

        You are a fool. Africans moving to other parts of the world is not unusual. In case u have forgotten history, a lot of Europeans moved to America in the past in order to have better standards of living. Africans have also been exploited and still been exploited by Europeans. So shot ur stupid mouth. Let me say it categorically here, a time will come in the future when a lot of Europeans will want to migrate to Africa. Mark my words, it may not be in your life time because hunger may have pushed u out before then, but tell ur children what I predicted.
