Riot police have clashed with protesters in Poland amid anti-foreigner sentiment in a northeastern town, after a young local man was stabbed to death on New Year’s Eve following a row at a kebab restaurant.

A Tunisian national – said to have worked as a cook at the restaurant in Elk – has been charged with killing the 21-year-old, who has been identified only as Daniel.

Amid the ensuing protests, the restaurant’s windows were smashed, demonstrators shouted anti-foreigner slogans and the police were attacked. Police say they made 28 arrests.
