A man holding a gun on a French female soldier at Orly Airport shouted, "I am here to die in the name of Allah ... There will be deaths," before two of the soldier's comrades shot the attacker dead Saturday morning, a prosecutor told reporters.

Axar.az reports that none of the soldiers were wounded, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said. The suspect, identified by Molins as Ziyed Ben Belgacem also is accused of shooting a police officer earlier in the day when he stole the officer's weapon. That officer has non-life-threatening wounds, officials said.

Molins said the suspect had been imprisoned several times on violence and theft convictions, including one five-year stint that began in 2009.

French terrorism investigators will lead the inquiry into the attacks, Molins said.
When Belgacem got to Orly Airport in the southern outskirts of Paris, he went to the South Terminal, carrying a weapon and a can of gas in his rucksack, Molins said.

He grabbed the female soldier and used her as a shield. They struggled over her weapon, the prosecutor said. With the soldier down on her knees, the suspect rose enough for the other two soldiers to shoot him several times. The whole scene unfolded in just a couple of minutes, Molins said.
Three relatives of the suspect were later taken into custody, Molins said. Belgacem's plans are unclear, he said, adding that an investigation will determine whether he acted as a "lone wolf."
