A French police officer who switched places with a hostage during Friday's terrorist attack at a French market has died.
Police Lt. Col. Arnaud Beltrame is being hailed as a hero. In a statement, President Emmanuel Macron said Beltrame's act "deserves the respect and admiration of the entire nation."
The gunman reportedly claimed to be acting on the behalf of the Islamic State. At least two other people were killed in the attack. French police say they've detained two people allegedly linked to the attacker.
