Flights resume at Paris airport after attempted attack

19 March 2017 17:45

Flights have resumed at Paris’ Orly Airport one day after a man was shot and killed while attempting to stage a shooting attack.

Officials announced on Sunday that schedules at Orly, which is Paris’ second-biggest airport and serves domestic and international flights, were returning to “normal.”

On Saturday, a 39-year-old French national identified as Ziyed Ben Belgacem, carrying a petrol can in his backpack, grabbed a soldier’s gun and fired shots before he was gunned down by security forces.

One soldier was reportedly slightly wounded in the incident, but no one else was harmed.
