No comments

A man has been shot and killed after attempting to seize a weapon from a solider at Paris Orly Airport.

The airport was immediately evacuated as bomb units searched the south terminal, swat teams have also been called.

French authorities have warned people to stay away from the airport while they conduct a search to ensure the man didn’t plant explosives.

After seizing the soldier’s weapon, the man ran into a McDonald’s restaurant at the airport before being taken down by a border patrol officer.

Paris Aereoport posted this on Twitter: “On going special operation by the Police. Please follow their instructions (safety area).”

France remains on high alert after a string of terror attacks in recent months. Just this week a student opened fired on fellow pupils at a school in Grasse, and a parcel bomb was sent to the International Monetary Fund’s offices in Paris on Thursday.
