Lassana Bathily has been described as the hero of the Kosher supermarket siege.
He saved lives during the hostage drama by hiding shoppers in a freezer when a gunman stormed the building.
Today, January 20th, his efforts were rewarded with a special ceremony in which the 24-year-old was granted a French passport and a medal for bravery.
The controversial French comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala has been arrested and is going to go to trial after posting a comment on his Facebook page that appeared to support Amedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who gunned down four hostages at a kosher supermarket in Paris last week.
He seemed to combine the name of the French satirical magazine with Coulibaly’s.
“I am finally going home. Know that this evening as far as I am concerned, I’m feeling Charlie Coulibaly,” he wrote on Sunday, hours after millions had taken part in rallies throughout France.
He later deleted the remark.
