PARIS (AP) - The Paris airport authority says Orly Airport is being entirely evacuated and all flights redirected after a man was shot dead after seizing a weapon from a soldier guarding the site.
A witness identified only as Dominque said on BFM television: "The soldiers took aim at the man, who in turn pointed the gun he had seized at the two soldiers."
Another man says on BFM that there was a group of three soldiers targeted, and they tried to calm the man who seized the weapon. Then the man said he heard two gunshots.
Another witness, identified as Patrick, said he was at the check-in counter when he saw someone come in from outside and the incident began.
A French journalist on a flight that landed from Nice told France-Info radio passengers are being kept on the plane and aren't being allowed to disembark.
