PARIS  - France's anti-terrorism prosecutor has opened an investigation after a man was shot dead while trying to grab an assault weapon from soldiers at Paris airport, an official at the prosecutor's office said.

The investigation will also cover an earlier incident in which a man, believed to be the same person, fired on security services after a routine road check.

A police source said the man was known to authorities and had been on a police watch list.
