As further details emerge about the horrific terror attack in Southern France, it has been reported that the police officer who took the place of a hostage and was subsequently killed, was a practicing Christian.
Lieutenant Colonel Arnaud Beltrame died on Saturday after voluntarily taking the place of a female hostage during Friday's terrorist attack on a Super U supermarket in Trèbes, southern France. An ISIS-inspired gunman killed Beltrame and three others.
In a tactical move, Col. Beltrame left his phone on as he entered the supermarket so that his colleagues could hear any conversation between him and the terrorist. Tragically, he was shot in the neck by jihadist Radouane Lakdim prior to police storming the supermarket and fatally shooting the Moroccan-born Frenchman.
