Man Shot Dead In French Anti-Terror Operation
One person has died after an anti-terrorist operation in the French city of Strasbourg, according to reports.
The man was shot and fatally wounded on Saturday in the northeast French city while he was being arrested, a source close to the inquiry said. According to initial reports, the man shot at police who returned fire.
According to a judicial source, the operation was part of the investigation into an incident on September 19 when "a minimally powerful explosive" was hurled into a Kosher grocery store in Sarcelles, in the Paris suburbs.
The incident left one person slightly injured but triggered strong reaction in the town's large Jewish community.
In the Strasbourg operation, three police officers were lightly wounded, protected by their bullet-proof vests and helmets, the judicial source added.
The anti-terror operation which was continuing on Saturday was being conducted in several cities around France.
