Le lieutenant-colonel Arnaud Beltrame nous a quittés.
Mort pour la patrie.
Jamais la France n’oubliera son héroïsme, sa bravoure, son sacrifice.
Le coeur lourd, j’adresse le soutien du pays tout entier à sa famille, ses proches et ses compagnons de la @Gendarmerie de l’Aude. pic.twitter.com/I1h8eO7f9a

In the Arno supermarket, Beltram exchanged himself for the last hostage, leaving a mobile phone on the table, so that the siloviks outside could hear everything. During the operation, the policeman was badly injured.
In addition to the lieutenant colonel , 3 people were killed and 16 were wounded. The attacker was born in Morocco and was killed by a special police force.
