Radicalised Muslim known to security agencies shot dead in ‘terror’ incident at Paris airport – miles from where Duke and Duchess are due to meet Bataclan victims

A picture taken of a television screen shows a man lying on the ground of a terminal building at Paris’ Orly airport after he was shot by French security forces for taking a weapon from a soldier

A radicalised Muslim known to intelligence agencies was shot dead at Orly airport outside Paris after seizing a soldier’s gun just hours after opening fire at police in a suburb the north of the city.

The attacker assaulted a patrol of three soldiers from the air force including a woman, who he wrestled to the ground as he tried to take her weapon, the French defense minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, said.

The minister says the two other patrolmen opened fire “to protect her” and the public in the airport.

The incident came as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in Paris to meet survivors of the Bataclan attacks.

The airport, the second largest serving the French capital, is about 20 miles from the central Paris residence of the British ambassador where the Royal couple are staying.
