PARIS: The south terminal of Paris' Orly airport may remain closed until Saturday evening following an incident in which soldiers shot dead a man who had tried to seize a soldier's weapon, the head of airport operator ADP said.

The airport's other terminal could reopen sooner, chief executive Augustin de Romanet told reporters.
