Obama praises ‘heroic’ US servicemen in French train attack


WASHINGTON, D.C.: President Barack Obama praised the heroism of US service members who overpowered a gunman aboard a high-speed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris on Friday. One of the two people injured in the attack was a US military member, the Pentagon confirmed, while CNN said that three American men — a member of the Air Force, an inactive National Guard member and a civilian — were the ones to prevent what might have been a massacre. “The president expressed his profound gratitude for the courage and quick thinking of several passengers, including US service members, who selflessly subdued the attacker,” a White House official said.
