Hollande offers 'heartfelt thanks' to Obama over US train heroes

French President Francois Hollande on Saturday offered his “heartfelt thanks” to his US counterpart Barack Obama for the “exemplary conduct” shown by three US citizens who overpowered a suspected jihadist gunman on a packed Amsterdam-Paris train, the Elysee said. Hollande will greet the train heroes at the Elysee Palace on Monday morning, a source close to his office told AFP. Armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle, an automatic pistol, nine cartridge clips and a box-cutter, the attacker opened fire on board a high-speed Thalys train just after it crossed from Belgium into northern France on Friday evening.
