I’m glad it all ended with a positive result.
Paris airport attacker told soldiers ‘I’m ready to die for Allah’
Ziyed Ben Belgacem, a 39-year-old French national, grabbed a female soldier and put a gun to her head, seizing her assault rifle, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins told a press conference.
“Put your weapons down, hands on your heads. I’m here to die for Allah. In any case people are going to die,” the attacker told the troops in Molins’s account of the attack.
He tried to use the soldier as a human shield but she dropped to her knees, giving her two colleagues an opportunity to shoot him.
