Representatives of the association of flag-bearers of Carcassonne laid flowers at the memorial of Arnaud Beltrame on Saturday, after he was killed during an incident treated as a terrorist attack in Carcassonne one day earlier.

"A big man for us, a man of honour, a man of courage and the proof is here," said Regis Burger, a flag-bearer of the association.

For a local resident who went to honour Beltrame, "this is the minimum we could do", it was "a small gesture from us to he who gave his life."

On Friday, a gunman killed one person while stealing a vehicle from Carcassonne. The gunman then reportedly drove to the nearby town of Trebes, where he took hostages at a Super U store. Beltrame was among the officers who rushed to the scene when the attacker stormed the supermarket.
