Letter Published in The National UAE on 30 May 18  France’s enlightened ideas on show with ‘Spider-Man’
I write in reference to your article France’s ‘Spider-Man’ granted citizenship after heroic balcony rescue (May 29): the recent heroic deed by a Malian migrant who saved a four-year-old child appears to have resonated in the upper echelons of French politics. The hero in question, Mamoudou Gassama, was honoured by French President Emmanuel Macron and will become a French citizen; a great accolade for the 22-year-old who arrived in France just months ago. Mr Macron is not the first French leader to do this. France is known for its revolutionary ideas. Now we know why. Kudos to Mr Gassama and the French president.
