CCTV footage of the Paris Orly airport attack has emerged, appearing to show the gunman taking a female soldier hostage before he is shot by her colleagues.
The man, who has been named as Ziyed Ben Belgacem, is seen struggling with a soldier for more than a minute before help arrives.
Belgacem, a 39-year-old French citizen, held an air pistol to the soldier's head and used her as a shield. Police believe he intended to use the soldier’s weapon to shoot members of the public.
The soldier’s colleague intervened and fired three bursts, shooting Belgacem dead.
