French police have jailed and put under formal investigation two men suspected of helping a man who attacked soldiers at France’s Orly Airport earlier this month, Reuters reported Saturday, citing a judicial source. The men, who have not been identified, are accused of helping 39-year-old Ziyed Ben Belgacem obtain the air pistol he allegedly used in the attack. Belgacem was shot dead by French soldiers after attacking another soldier and trying to steal her assault rifle last week. Belgacem reportedly shouted that he was there to “die for Allah” during the incident, renewing fears of a terrorist attack in a country that is already on high alert following a spate of attacks.
