France grants citizenship to Algerian hero of Paris attacks
The 35-year-old man, known only as Didi, was raised in France and worked as a security guard at the Bataclan.
He was outside the concert hall when the attack started, but rushed inside to open a back door and help people escape.
His "cool-headedness and courage saved lives," the Interior Ministry said in a statement Wednesday that announced his citizenship.
He requested that his full name and photo not be publicly disclosed.
The attacks carried out by Islamist militants at a stadium, concert hall, cafes and bars left 130 dead.
During the attack on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in 2015, French-Algerian policeman Ahmed Merabet was shot dead by the attackers.
Following his death, Merabet's family urged people "not to confuse extremists with Muslims."
