2 Detained for Possible Weapon Link in Paris Airport Attack

2 Detained for Possible Weapon Link in Paris Airport Attack

Tuesday, 21 March 2017 07:38 AM

PARIS (AP) — Two people have been detained on suspicion of involvement in providing a weapon to a Frenchman who was shot to death after attacking soldiers guarding Paris' Orly airport.

The Paris prosecutor's office says the two suspects remained in custody Tuesday after being detained Monday, and face possible preliminary charges of association with a terrorist enterprise. Their identities were not released.

Authorities say attacker Ziyed Ben Belgacem shot and wounded a police officer with a revolver loaded with birdshot Saturday, then attacked soldiers at Orly while brandishing a revolver and yelling that he wanted to kill and die for Allah. Other soldiers shot Belgacem to death.

While no one else was hurt, the incident further rattled France, under a state of emergency after a string of attacks.
