Greek-US man in­volved

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greek-Amer­i­can Alek Skar­latos and another two US cit­i­zens who over­pow­ered a gun­man on a train be­tween Am­s­ter­dam and Paris on Fri­day were in­vited to the El­y­see Palace by French Pres­i­dent Fran­cois Hol­lande on Satur­day and praised by Pres­i­dent Barack Obama as he­roes. Skar­latos, a 22-year-old mem­ber of the Ore­gon Na­tional Guard who had re­cently re­turned from ser­vice in Afghanistan, said he and two friends, another army of­fi­cer, Spencer Stone, and An­thony Sadler, a stu­dent, had been on the train when they saw a man en­ter hold­ing a Kalash­nikov. Stone tack­led the gun­man but was cut with a knife. The friends then dis­armed the sus­pect, beat him un­til he was un­con­scious and bound him.
