Orly airport: France launches terror investigation

Orly airport: France launches terror investigation”

Belgacem arrived at the airport and attacked the military patrol in the south terminal.

Despite this statement and the fact that the investigation is conducted by the anti-terrorist section of the prosecution, Molins did not describe the act as a terrorist act and asserted that the future investigations will allow to define the motivations of the individual.

Paris prosecutor Francois Mollins told reporters between 2011 and 2012 officials noticed "signs of radicalisation" in the inmate.

He then fled in his vehicle and called an unidentified member of his family to say, "I've done something stupid", the prosecutor said.

Police sources told French media that the airport shooting may have been linked to a separate incident in the Paris suburb of Stains. After police stopped him for driving too fast and without headlights, prosecutors said Belgacem opened fire with a revolver loaded with bird shot, injuring an officer in the face.

Belgacem's brother and a cousin, who were detained soon after the Orly attacks, remained in custody on Sunday. The injured police officer had attempted to stop Belgacem at a checkpoint near Le Bourget, another airport near Paris.

The fearsome drama that caused no injuries aside from the lightly wounded traffic police officer further rattled France, which remains under a state of emergency after attacks in the past two years that have killed 235 people. He tried again to use her as a shield, but a third shot killed him at 8:25 am, Molins said.

His house was among scores searched in November 2015 in the immediate aftermath of suicide bomb-and-gun attacks that killed 130 people in Paris.

More than 230 people have died in France in the past two years at the hands of attackers allied to the militant Islamist group Islamic State, whose strongholds in Syria and Iraq are being bombed by an global coalition including France.

The auto was later found abandoned.

Around 3,000 passengers were evacuated from Orly-Sud terminal, the scene of the attack, while elite police teams secured it and swept it for possible explosives.

Dozens of flights to and from Orly were cancelled during an hours-long shutdown, but by Sunday afternoon air traffic had returned to normal, a spokeswoman for the Paris airports authority said.

Hollande declared, "Those who were asking themselves about the appropriateness of Operation Sentinel [the deployment of armed soldiers across public spaces, airports, and train stations across France] must now understand that this reinforcement is critical, that the entire mechanism responded perfectly to orders given several months ago by me and by the government". Saturday was at least the fourth time that Sentinelle soldiers have been targeted since the force, which includes 7,500 soldiers, was created in 2015.

After wrestling the servicewoman's assault weapon and separating himself from her, Belgacem was shot dead by the other soldiers.
