“Troops at Paris'[s] Orly airport on Saturday shot dead a man who tried to grab a female soldier’s weapon saying he was ready to die for Allah, triggering a major security alert that caused travel chaos. The incident comes as France remains on high alert following a series of jihadist attacks that have claimed more than 230 lives since January 2015. Prosecutors said they had opened an anti-terror investigation.” (03/19/17)
