Closed-circuit TV footage has emerged showing the entire duration of the attempted terror attack at a Parisian airport.

The attack occurred on Saturday at Orly Airport, just south of the French capital, reports Fox News.  

The newly released three-minute video shows the terrorist, identified as Ziyed Ben Belgacem, sneaking up behind a female soldier and grabbing her service weapon. The man is seen holding a BB gun to the women’s head and using her as a human-shield.

The two struggled for over 90 seconds before Belgacem was shot and killed by fellow soldiers.

The would-be terrorist is believed to have launched an attack against police earlier that afternoon, shooting at Police officers at a north Paris checkpoint.

“We can link the [airport attacker’s] identity with a check carried out at Garges-les-Gonesse by a patrol in Stains this morning,” said one French official.

A toxicology report found cocaine, marijuana, and alcohol in Belgacem’s system at the time of the incident.
