Tributes paid to 'hero' officer killed after swapping with French supermarket hostage

France shooting

Thus, once again one Muslim commits an act of terrorism in the name of a terrorist ideology that uses the name of Islam and brings dishonor and disgrace to the Islamic religion and its followers.

Britain's ambassador to France, Ed Llewellyn, also paid tribute, saying Lt Col Beltrame "gave his life to save the lives of others" and was "truly a hero".

Police overpowered the assailant at a Super U store in Trèbes, about 8 miles southeast of Carcassonne and 60 miles north of the Spanish border.

Lakdim was known to authorities for drug-dealing and other petty crimes, but had also been under surveillance by security services in 2016-2017 for links to the radical Salafist movement, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said on Friday.

"Even though we were surprised and shocked when we heard what happened we were not surprised in the sense that that's the thing he would do without hesitation", Ms Nicolic said.

Police were holding two people as part of the investigation- a woman connected to Lakdim and a 17-year-old boy said to be one of his friends.

Lakdim reportedly demanded the release of certain prisoners - notably, according to a security source, Saleh Abdeslam, the prime suspect in the November 2015 Paris terror attacks.

French President Emmanuel Macron said he considered the incident to be a terrorist attack and on Saturday called on the French to remember Beltrame and "honor his memory".

"They claim to be combatants", Brisard said of the attackers, "and they target people who have an important symbolism for those who want to see themselves as dying as martyrs".

The 25-year-old had already killed the supermarket's butcher and a customer before shooting Beltrame, prompting police to move in and kill the attacker.

'France will never forget its bravery, its heroism, its sacrifice', Interior Minister Gerard Collomb told reporters on his social network account Twitter, reporting his death due to injuries, bringing his number up to four. deathly victims. The unidentified teenager was arrested overnight over alleged criminal association in relation with a terrorist enterprise.

A couple of days later on, a guy putting on a phony eruptive belt assaulted law enforcement officer in the Goutte d'Or area of Paris with a meat cleaver while screaming Allahu Akbar.

Supermarket boss Samia Menassi, whose store remains closed and surrounded by police tape, was still in shock on Saturday as she recalled hearing the first gunshots.

"I condemn the vicious terrorist attack that took place in France".

A judicial source told ABC News that investigators found three homemade explosives, a handgun and a hunting knife inside Lakdi's apartment.

He was deployed to Iraq in 2005 and was later awarded the Cross for Military Valour for his peacekeeping work. In 2014, he joined Ministry of Ecology and Development as advisor to Secretary-General, and in August he was assigned to Carcassonne.

"He was really in the wrong place at the wrong time".

France has been on high alert since a series of extremist attacks in 2015 and 2016 killed more than 200 people.

Marie Castelles, of Trebes, said "the military, the police officers, I would like to give them a big homage".

Two people have been detained for questioning in the case.

At least one person was killed in a hostage situation in southern France involving a man claiming allegiance to ISIS, in Trèbes, France, March 23, 2018.

The cop has been labelled a hero by many.
