CCTV footage has been released of the moment a suspected Islamic extremist grabbed a female soldier and attempted to take her gun at Orly airport in Paris.
In the video, the gunman – identified as Ziyed Ben Belgacem – drops a shopping bag and seizes the soldier around the shoulders as her colleague patrols ahead.
He shoves her along inside the airport terminal for more than 40 seconds, before getting into a struggle as he attempts to wrench away her gun.
The struggle continues for nearly a minute before he is shot dead by other soldiers as he grabs the weapon.
Sky News has frozen the video at the moment other soldiers open fire.
