    Paris (CNN)A man holding a gun on a French female soldier at Orly Airport shouted, “I am here to die for Allah. There will be deaths,” before two of the soldier’s comrades shot the attacker dead Saturday morning, a prosecutor told reporters.

    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.

    2. Well, not everyone cna achieve their life goals so quickly. Good for him.

    What if I want to tell you to leave me and my beloved ones in peace

    But you only understand the language of the sword

    I let the blade do the talking

    So my tongue shall become iron

    And my words the mighty roar of war

    3. I'll wait for the video footage with audio.

    “The attacker … was under supervision by authorities …  was known to intelligence services.”
