A Chinese illegal immigrant died of injuries sustained last week when she plunged from an apartment window in Paris while trying to elude police, officials said Monday. The case of Zhang Chulan, 51, drew attention to government attempts to step up deportations of illegal immigrants. President Nicolas Sarkozy has pledged to expel 25,000 illegal immigrants by the end of the year.

She died of her injuries Friday at a Paris hospital, police said.
