Man shot dead for trying to seize gun from soldier at Paris Orly airport

London, Mar. 18: A man has been shot dead after allegedly attempting to seize a gun from a soldier at Paris Orly airport.
Citing French media reports, the Independent said the suspect made the attempt at the airport’s south terminal after targeting a counter-terror patrol.
The terminal was evacuated as security operations continued, with France’s National Police urging people not to cross the security perimeter.
The soldier was part of Operation Sentinel – a security initiative seeing troops deployed in combat uniforms around high profile sites including the Eiffel Tower since the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
France remains on high alert following a string of terror attacks directed and inspired by ISIS. (ANI)
