France Train


French President Francois Hollande bestowed the Legion of Honor, France’s highest decoration, on three Americans and a Briton who subdued a heavily armed Moroccan-born gunman aboard a high-speed train on Friday. At a ceremony in Paris, President Hollande pinned medals on the chests of Americans Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos, Anthony Sadler, and Briton Chris Norman. VOA’s Vincent Makori reports and later, VOA’s Jeff Custer has more on the heroic act that likely saved many lives.
