Taiwan cautions travelers to New York over planned protests

Taipei, Dec. 31 (CNA) Taiwan issued a travel notice Wednesday urging its nationals residing or traveling in New York to be on alert and avoid crowded areas ahead of planned protests on New Year's Eve against police. The planned protests in New York follow several shootings by police in recent months. Fatal shootings of unarmed black men by white officers have caused racial tensions to flare up in cities across the United States. On Dec. 20, two New York City police officers were shot in the head as they sat in their patrol car, allegedly by an angry citizen who reportedly committed suicide after the attack. (By Elaine Hou)
