Lassana Bathily, who worked at the market that came under attack, led a group of customers into a cold storage from to hide from the gunmen. He then risked his life, taking an elevator out into the street to connect with the police and explain the layout of the store, the AFP reported on Thursday.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Bathily will be awarded French citizenship on Tuesday.

“We’re brothers. It’s not a question of Jews, Christians or Muslims,” Bathily told a French news channel. “We’re all in the same boat, and we have to help one another to get out of this crisis.”
