Friends and family attend mass in honour of French attack victims


PARIS (Reuters) - Hundreds of people including friends, family and local officials attended a memorial service in Trebes on Sunday to honour the victims of the Islamist militant attack that killed a gendarme and three other people in southwest France last week.

Gendarme Arnaud Beltrame, 44, who voluntarily took the place of a female hostage during the supermarket siege on Friday in the tranquil town near the Pyrenees mountains, received a special tribute for what French President Emmanuel Macron had described as a heroic act.
