编辑:给力英语新闻 更新:2017年3月20日 作者:美国之音(VOA News)

法国当局仍然在研究在巴黎奥利机场被击毙的人到底是一时冲动发动袭击还是精心策划而发动袭击的。

袭击者贝勒卡赛姆生在法国,父母是突尼斯人。星期六上午,他抓住一个女兵,用枪指着她的头,喊道他愿“为阿拉而死”。

检察官说,他们怀疑39岁的袭击者同激进派伊斯兰有关联,看来他当时想对旅客开枪,和这位女兵一同在繁忙的机场候机大楼巡逻的两名同事在贝勒卡赛姆开火之前将其击毙。

这场袭击迫使机场候机大楼关闭和疏散。乘客和工作人员惊慌逃离现场。数百人仍然被困在已经降落的飞机上。

警方没有提供有关这次袭击的动机。但是,巴黎检察官办公室说,反恐部门正在对事件进行调查。嫌疑人的父亲和兄弟星期六被警方拘留。警方称,这是标准程序的一部分。

凶嫌的父亲星期天被释放,他告诉法国的欧罗巴1广播电台说,他儿子不是恐怖分子,他儿子喝了酒,受酒精影响,在枪击事件发生的几分钟后,儿子给他打电话,很激动地说:“请原谅我。我和一个警察搞砸了。”

贝勒卡赛姆的父亲后来到警察局去,了解到他儿子的死讯。

截止到星期日上午,反恐调查员仍在询问袭击者的兄弟和其他亲戚。

法国内政部长布鲁诺·勒鲁说,周六早上,贝勒卡赛姆在巴黎北部郊区因为开车超速和无灯驾驶被警察拦下。他手持左轮手枪打伤一名警官。勒鲁还说,“警方和情报机构都知道”枪手这个人。

贝勒卡赛姆持枪偷窃一辆汽车并驶往机场之前,还在酒吧威胁过人。

在奥利机场被袭击的这名女兵是哨兵特种部队的成员之一。自从2015年恐怖袭击以来,该部队负责法国机场,宗教场所以及人们经常光顾的其它场所的警卫工作。警方人员迅速将机场保护起来,搜查过程中没有发现任何爆炸物品。

法国总统奥朗德在一个新闻发布会上说,奥利机场的袭击证明了哨兵特种部队的必要性。他表示,调查人员将查明袭击者的幕后是否有恐怖阴谋。

法国当局表示,2015年,在发生导致130人丧生的巴黎恐怖袭击之后,他们曾经因为怀疑这名嫌疑人和伊斯兰激进派有联系而搜查过他的家 。

Paris Orly Airport Attacker Said He Wanted ‘to Die for Allah’

French authorities are still working to determine whether a man shot dead at Paris' Orly airport acted on impulse or carefully planned an attack.

Ziyed Ben Belgacem, born in France to Tunisian parents, was killed Saturday morning after grabbing a female soldier and putting a gun to her head. He was heard shouting he wanted to "die for Allah."

The 39-year-old, suspected to have links to radical Islam, apparently intended to open fire on passengers, a prosecutor said. Two colleagues on patrol with the female soldier shot and killed the man before he could fire the military weapon in the busy airport terminal.

The attack forced the airport's terminals to shut down and evacuate, while passengers and workers were fleeing in panic and hundreds of others remained aboard flights that had just landed.

Police did not provide a motive for the attack, but the Paris prosecutors office said an investigation is being handled by the anti-terror division. The suspect’s father and brother were detained by police Saturday, which police said is part of standard procedure.

Belgacem’s father was released Sunday and told France's Europe 1 radio that his son was not a terrorist.

“He never prayed and he drank. This is what happens under the influence of drink and cannabis,” he said.

Belgacem called his father minutes after the shooting "in a state of extreme agitation".

"He said to me: 'Daddy, please forgive me. I've screwed up with a police officer.'

Belgacem’s father learned of his son’s death after presenting himself at a police station.

As of Sunday morning, the anti-terror investigators were still questioning the shooter’s brother and cousin.

Belgacem was first stopped by police in Paris' northern suburbs early Saturday morning for speeding and driving without lights.

He opened fire with a revolver, wounding an officer, Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux said, adding that the shooter was “known to the police and intelligence.”

Belgacem then threatened people in a bar before stealing a car at gunpoint and driving to the airport.

The female soldier attacked at Orly is a member of the Sentinelle Special Forces that guard airports, religious sites and other popular places in France since terror attacks in 2015.

Police teams quickly secured the airport and searched for explosives, but found none.

French President Francois Hollande said during a news conference that the Orly attack proved the necessity of the Sentinelle patrol soldiers and that investigators will determine whether the attacker “had a terrorist plot behind him.”

The suspect, who spent time in prison for drugs and armed robbery, had his home searched in 2015 after a terror attack in Paris that killed 130 people because of his suspected connection to radical Islam, French authorities said.
