Exact timing of an Islamist attack on a soldier at the airport
The network circulates a video that shows the moment a man attacked a soldier at the Paris Orly airport and attempted to seize his firearm on 18 March. The images show how the attacker drops a shopping bag and approaches the military behind.
Also in this video you can see the attacker, identified as Ziyed Ben Belgacem by Paris prosecutor, François Molins, at the moment he grabs the soldier by the shoulders while his partner patrols in front of her. Then you can see how the man pulls the military back while holding his revolver loaded with pellets. At first the people around you react without understanding what is going on.
Belgacem, who shouted Islamic slogans during his attack, was shot down after other members of the patrol opened fire on him. No other person was injured at the scene.
The autopsy of the attacker, who was on the police list on matters related to drug trafficking and radical Islamic activity, revealed remains of cocaine, cannabis and alcohol in his blood, according to the prosecutor’s office
