Troops at Paris’ Orly airport on Saturday shot dead a man who tried to grab a female soldier’s weapon, triggering a major security alert that shut down the airport, leaving thousands stranded.
The incident comes as France remains on high alert following a series of jihadist attacks that have claimed over 230 lives since January 2015.
Prosecutors said they had opened an anti-terror investigation.
Flights were halted at Orly for several hours, with incoming flights diverted and thousands of passengers stranded at Paris’ second-largest airport, but normal service resumed mid-afternoon.
France goes to the polls on April 23 in the first round of a two-stage presidential election in which security is one of the main issues on voters’ minds.
Paris’ top prosecutor has identified the attacker as Ziyed Ben Belgacem.
There have been 20 Islamist terrorist attacks in France since 2015.
France has the highest proportion of Muslims of any country in Europe.
