Swat teams and bomb squad officers are sent into the airport after a man grabs a gun from a soldier and flees into a restaurant.

A man has been shot dead at Paris Orly airport after grabbing a counter-terrorism soldier's gun and running into a restaurant.

The airport has been evacuated after the incident at the south terminal and swat teams have been sent in.

Police are warning the public to stay away while the bomb squad searches the terminal to check the man was not wearing an explosive belt and had not planted any devices.

Flights have been suspended at both terminals and some incoming flights are being diverted to Charles de Gaulle.

    Man is shot dead at Paris Orly airport after snatching a soldier's weapon as manhunt is launched for suspect who fled the scene and then stole a car


    A man has been shot dead at Paris Orly airport after taking a soldier's gun and fleeing into a shop.

    Unconfirmed reports claim a second man has also been shot dead, and a third suspect fled in a Renault Clio.

    Anti-terror police are searching the airport for possible accomplices and explosives, and authorities have warned the public to stay away.

    The interior ministry has said officers are carrying out a bomb sweep to determine if he was wearing an explosive belt.

    Passengers recounted shots being fired within the south terminal at 8.30am today.

    Video taken from the airport - the second largest serving the French capital - show panic as people were evacuated.

    Passengers landing at Orly have been kept on planes while the anti-terror operation is carried out.

    Seems the information is very sketchy and contradicting at the moment.

    The shooting happened in the north of Paris during a road check.

    At Paris Orly Airport, in the south of the city, a man was shot by a soldier after he tried to snatch his weapon.

    The man lunged at the soldier, then ran and hid in McDonald's.

    Paris Orly Airport shooting: Attacker was on terror watchlist


    Police confirm a terror watchlist suspect shot a policewoman before launching an attack on a soldier at a Paris airport.

    A radicalised Muslim on a terror watchlist opened fire on three police officers at a road check before attacking a soldier at a Paris airport.

    The gunman launched his first attack after being stopped at a road check north of the city early this morning, shooting a policewoman in the head.

    He then held up a woman motorist at gunpoint, stealing her car and driving to Orly airport.

    In the airport terminal the attacker assaulted a patrol of three counter-terrorism soldiers, wrestling one of them to the floor and trying to take her gun.
