French cop who 'always put others first'

French cop who 'always put others first'Arnaud Beltrame’s family were devastated to hear that he had sacrificed his life to help end a jihadist attack, but they were not surprised: he was always putting other people first. The police officer, who receives a full national honour ceremony on Wednesday, has been hailed as a hero for offering himself as a hostage during Friday’s attack in southwest France. President Emmanuel Macron, who will give Wednesday’s eulogy, said the married 44-year-old had “displayed exceptional calm in the heat of the moment”.
