A fifth victim wounded during an attack at a Christmas market in the French city of Strasbourg has died, authorities and relatives said.
The prosecutors office confirmed on Sunday (local time) that a Polish national had died after being injured by Cherif Chekatt in Tuesdays rampage.
My brother Barto Pedro Orent-Niedzielski has just passed away. He thanks you for the love and strength you have given him, the brother of the 36-year-old victim from the Polish city of Katowice wrote on Facebook. Chekatt, 29, attacked Christmas market shoppers armed with a gun and a knife, before being killed by police two days later.
Orent-Niedzielski and his Italian friend Antonio Megalizzi had tried to stop Chekatt from entering a bar during Tuesdays assault, a close friend told AFP.
Megalizzi, 28, died from his injuries on Friday.
