Police sources say man killed by soldier was earlier involved in incident north of French capital in which policeman was shot and injured
Anti-terror officials have launched an investigation after a man reportedly known to the security services shot a police officer in northern Paris before travelling across the city to Orly airport, where he was killed following an altercation with another officer.
The attacker was said to be a radicalised Muslim who appeared on a security watch list, police sources told Reuters. The anti-terrorism prosecutor in France later confirmed an inquiry had been opened into the incident on Saturday morning.
The man was shot after he tried to grab a soldier’s weapon at the airport. Interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said: “A man took a weapon from a soldier then hid in a shop in the airport before being shot dead by security forces.”
