A man has been shot dead at the Paris Orly airport in France after trying to seize a weapon from an officer, officials say.
The airport is in lock-down and parts have been evacuated, with heavily armed police sweep the area, reports say.
Officials say the man snatched the weapon before he ran into an airport shop after a brief stand-off with police.
