sick in misrata more often now we need to show him that his sacrifice was not in vain. don't look different he will forever be in the hearts of the french people so i mean why are we need to show him that his memory lives on so his example lives on the move i will make sure of it schieffer you're going. joining me now is the day of the correspondent liza lewis she's in paris and following the memorial there you said we just heard a bit of what the french president had to say tell us more about his eulogy and his main message while it was a very solemn speech freely he was paying tribute obviously to this hero of france he called him one of france's children he compared. to traditional historical heroes during the first and second world wars in tucson doc
and the like and he said that he had the courage to stand up to what the president called craziness actually islamised craziness and he said to he actually addressed a message to those who could be actually seduced by islamic radicals and he said there is an alternative to that and time has shown us that it's rare to stand up for our nation that is something to fight for and of course it's just that the president the whole nation is paying tribute to left and colonel are numbered from here is more about the man and what he symbolized. he was. over that stranger and now his nation is honoring him ten a colonel i know about tram is hailed a hero by france. is one of the first officers to respond to the deadly hostage siege in trade as events unfolded at this supermarket he traded places with a female hostage who was being used as
a human shield by the attacker and it wasn't just his act of self-sacrifice that helped and the four were siege cleverly managed to leave his mobile phone on so that police could hear what was happening inside then after hearing gunshots reinforcements went in shooting the twenty six year old islamist attacker and ending the ordeal three people were killed in the rampage police officer died of his injuries a day later initiating an outpouring of further praise for the forty four year old sacrifice the trams background prepared him well for the events of march twenty third he joined france's elite police special forces in two thousand and three and served in iraq in two thousand and five just three months prior he organized a training session for just such an attack he's a clown but. mother said that he was always they came to save the country since he was a child that is more about what people think about this french hero as he's being
laid to rest. well people who intend at the ceremony today actually said that the they were really impressed by him that they thought of him as a great hero that harrison had a face and name today and indeed his mother was speaking to french media saying that she wouldn't have expected anything else when she had that run police of his and was injured and had into exchange himself for the last remaining hostage it was absolutely clear to him to her that it was her son because she knew how courage just he could be the frances seen several major terrorist attacks since two thousand and fifteen one does this day offer national mourning mean for the country . this is an occasion for all the friends to come together and stand together again in the face of terrorism obviously it's very difficult to go through all these different attacks over the past few years and the government has implemented
several anti terror laws but the french still feel that the terror threat is very high here that new terror attacks are likely and could actually happen in the coming months again and this is an occasion for them to come together as a nation and say we're standing up to them and we're going to be strong even in the future and one of the countries paying tribute to the fallen kiddo is the government also coming under pressure always handling of this case like sample the hostage taker they're doing was under surveillance but the police didn't take action against him. yes absolutely there is a debate going on here especially from the far right on the right in parliament there saying the government needs to crack down further they say who are known to be radicalized now days this at this list of people who are known to be radicalized and it's about you know that list in leeds about twenty thousand different people say it's rather difficult it would be rather difficult to actually put them into
prison all these people also against human rights as these who are supporting the government and the measures are saying so there is still a debate going on but it's actually quite unclear what more the government could do given that france has already one of the toughest anti terror legislations in europe and even in the world but the day to day belongs to the sacrifice made by lifton colonel arnold belltown as he's laid to rest in fantasies a lewis thank you very much for that life update. families are burying their loved ones who died in a shopping mall or find siberia over the weekend forty one children were among the more than sixty people who died in a chemical oval correspondent mcculloch on my dogs he tells us about one family's story. locals in camera will have been shattered by what happened in the shopping center last weekend it's here at the city's central cemetery where the first funeral ceremonies have been held this is where those three generations of bar and
