France: Airport attacker shot dead
Mar 18, Paris: A man was shot dead after grabbing a soldier's weapon at Orly airport in Paris, French officials say. He was killed by the security forces in a shop after seizing the gun in the airport's southern terminal.
The airport was shut after what the authorities described as an extremely serious incident. The man was on a watch-list of radicalised individuals and had been involved in a shooting hours earlier in the north of Paris, officials say.
The suspect in the earlier incident was stopped at a checkpoint and fired at police before escaping in a car that was later found abandoned in the southern suburbs.
A huge security operation is now underway at the airport
