Footage has emerged of the moment a man was shot dead on Saturday by French police after seizing a soldier’s gun at Paris Orly airport in France.

The recording, which was made available on Monday, shows 39-year-old Ziyed Ben Belgacem approaching a French soldier from behind and the consequent struggle over the weapon.

The busy Orly airport south of Paris was evacuated and security forces swept the area for bombs to make sure the dead man was not wearing an explosive belt, but nothing had been found.

Around 3,000 passengers were evacuated from the airport at the time of the attack, the second busiest in the country.
