Paris Shooting: Hero Police Officer Who Begged For His Life Was Married Muslim

DAILY EXPRESS: A MUSLIM police officer begged for his life as masked gunmen shot him to death on the streets of Paris as part of the Charlie Hebdo magazine massacre.

Chilling footage of the attack on the satirical magazine offices shows Ahmed Merabet on the ground and begging for mercy as he is killed by a gunshot to the head.

After being shot the first time, the gunmen wearing balaclavas and wielding Kalashnikov rifles are seeing running past the police officer - who had his hands up in surrender - before they shoot him again point-blank as he lies on the pavement outside the offices in the 11th arrondissement of Paris.

Mr Merabet, 42, is reportedly said to have asked his killers "Do you want to kill me?" before they allegedly replied: "Okay chief." He is survived by his wife. » | Rebecca Perring | Friday, January 09, 2015
