PARIS (AP) — The Paris prosecutors' office says a man killed by soldiers at Orly Airport today had previously crossed authorities' radar for suspected Islamic extremism. Prosecutors say his house was among scores searched in November 2015 in the immediate aftermath of suicide bomb-and-gun attacks that killed 130 people in Paris. Those searches targeted people with suspected radical leanings. Authorities say the 39-year-old Frenchman was shot dead today as he tried to take a soldier's weapon.
