Flights at Paris' Orly airport were returning to normal Sunday a day after a man triggered a major security alert and travel chaos when he attacked a soldier before being shot dead.All three family members had made contact with the police themselves, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins told a press conference late on Saturday.Molins said Ben Belgacem grabbed a female soldier and put a gun to her head, seizing her assault rifle.About 100 people who were unable to board flights slept at Orly in beds provided by the airport, while 100 to 200 others spent the night at hotels provided by airlines.Molins said Ben Belgacem had also fired at police in Garges-les-Gonesse earlier on Saturday, slightly injuring one officer in the head.
