STM32F4 Discovery, cannot clear parity error intterrupt

I'm using STM32F4 discovery to develop usart communication function.
The usart parameter is below.

 /// Set serial port
 USART_InitStructure.USART_BaudRate = 9600;          ///< 9600bps
 USART_InitStructure.USART_WordLength = USART_WordLength_9b;      ///< data 8bit + parity 1bit
 USART_InitStructure.USART_StopBits = USART_StopBits_1;       ///< stop 1bit
 USART_InitStructure.USART_Parity = USART_Parity_Even;       ///< parity even
 USART_InitStructure.USART_Mode = USART_Mode_Rx | USART_Mode_Tx;     ///< enable Rx, Tx
 USART_InitStructure.USART_HardwareFlowControl = USART_HardwareFlowControl_None; ///< no hardware flow control
 USART_Init(USART3, &USART_InitStructure);

And enable PE interrupt, and then, send parity error data to this discovery board.
So, parity error interrupt is occurred successfully, but after this parity error intterupt is occured continuously (I cannot clear the PE error bit).

The USART intterrupt is below.

void USART3_IRQHandler (void) __irq
     char tmpRcv; 
     /// PE Interrupt  (PE flag is cleared when the flag is read) 
     if (USART_GetFlagStatus(USART3, USART_FLAG_PE) == SET)    

     /// RXNE interrupt
     else if (USART_GetFlagStatus(USART3, USART_FLAG_RXNE) == SET)
          ///receive data (and the RXNE flag is cleared)
          tmpRcv = USART_ReceiveData(USART3);


It seems that the PE flag is not cleared when the flag is read.
Please help to solve this problem.

best regards.
