A young Muslim man who is believed to have saved various Jewish supermarket hostages in Paris as they sought refuge from the killer Amedy Coulibaly has been hailed a hero.

The man was identified as Lassana Bathily who is originally from West Africa and hid the customers to safety in a chiller as the gunman took hold of the supermarket in Porte de Vincennes, reported the Mirror.

Coulibaly had killed four hostages before police arrived at the location. The police later killed the gunman as he attempted to flee.

Bathily told how he helped the customers when he opened the door of the freezer as customers ran.

French police have killed all three suspects while the rest of the hostages were released at the supermarket. (ANI)
