France is mourning the death of a courageous police officer who offered himself up to an Islamic extremist gunman in exchange for a hostage during an attack on a supermarket. Flags are at half-staff at all French gendarmeries. "We stand with France", spokesperson for Ukraine's Foreign Ministry Mariana Betsa wrote on Twitter on Friday, March 23. Israel and France, she said, "share values of freedom and liberty and are cooperating in the global fight against terror". "He is our hero".
Secretary-general of SGP Police-FO police union Yves Lefebvre said the man first fired six shots at police on their way back from a morning run near Carcassonne.
He said a French police officer who had offered himself up as a hostage swap during the siege was seriously injured. In an attack later that year, terrorists killed 130 people in multiple locations in Paris. "He was very aware of what he was doing".
Beltrame's brother Cedric said he would have known all too well the risk he was taking.
The officer managed to leave his phone on during the incident so that police outside could monitor what was happening inside the supermarket. His partner, who lived with him in Carcassonne, has been detained, Molins said. Of course I left, I lost him and when I turned around he wasn't there anymore.
Police ended the standoff when they shot and killed Lakdim, who, according to The Los Angeles Times, left at least a dozen others injured in his wake.
A state of emergency put in place just after the 2015 Paris attacks was lifted last October when Macron's centrist government passed a new law boosting the powers of security forces. Molins didn't identify her. Local newspapers had recently reported a playground had been set on fire.
A gun-wielding extremist went on a rampage Friday in a quiet corner of southern France, killing three people as he hijacked a vehicle, opened fire on police and took hostages in a supermarket, where panicked shoppers hid in a meat locker or ran through the aisles.
The shooting spree comes with France still on high alert following a string of jihadist assaults since 2015 that have claimed more than 240 lives.
The unidentified young man was arrested overnight over alleged criminal association in relation with a terrorist enterprise. The Paris prosecutor's office said that counterterrorism officers had taken over the case.
The reason for the shooting and hostage-taking is unclear, as is the identity of the attacker.
French authorities have confirmed that police fatally shot the hostage-taker who had been holed up inside a supermarket in southern France. "It's someone, since he was born, who gives everything for his homeland".
"Now mainly internal, it is first of all the result of radicalised individuals living in our country", he said.
The two leaders talked over the phone on Tuesday and discussed U.S. -Russia relations and denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula. President Trump meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany on July 7, 2017.
