Mourners laid flowers outside Carcassonne's Gendarmerie Nationale on Saturday to honour French police officer Arnaud Beltrame who was killed after swapping himself for a hostage at a Trebes supermarket a day earlier. On Friday, a gunman killed one person while stealing a vehicle from Carcassonne. The gunman then reportedly drove to the nearby town of Trebes, where he took hostages at a Super U... Еще store. Beltrame was among the officers who rushed to the scene when the attacker stormed the supermarket. The gunman, who has been identified as 26-year old Redouane Lakdim known for minor delinquencies, was shot dead after the police raided the supermarket. According to French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, the incident «appears to be a terrorist act.» «It's a shame!» said Gilbert, a local who also has a son in the police. «We have to let them do their job,» he added. The self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has claimed responsibility for the attack. An investigation has reportedly been launched by the anti-terrorist division of the Public Prosecutor's Office in Paris.
