    Thank goodness there was a few handy guys (US marines) to take the beep down. :clap:

    Quite, and a Brit I believe. Luckily they were switched on enough to hear the guy loading his rifle in the toilet, and capable enough to react. It could've been a lot worse.

    Details are still coming out, but I don't believe any US Marines were involved in this. It was a student, a member of the Oregon National Guard who had recently done a tour in Afghanistan, and a member of the US Air Force (all three Americans), a 62 year old British man, and possibly a French person.

    Of course that doesn't detract at all from what they did; I agree that it was quite heroic.

    All of whom have now been awarded the Legion d'honneur (Chevalier), by Prez Hollande.
