A female soldier was caught by surprise at Paris’ Orly Airport last Saturday. A video shows Ziyed Ben Belgacem dropping a bag and grabbing her from behind.
For a few moments, no one reacts. One passenger rolls a suitcase past the hostage soldier and a second soldier continues on his way. Then people start backing away as the attacker pulls his hostage toward them.
Yelling that he wanted to kill and die for Allah, Belgacem can be seeing trying to wrestle away the soldier’s assault rifle near the small cluster of people. When he finally manages to get control of the weapon, he gives a clear shot to the other soldiers, that kills him.
No one at the airport was injured. Not even the hostage.
