Lassana Bathily, a Muslim man originally from Mali, saved several lives in the siege of a Paris grocery store:

Lassana Bathily, a Muslim employee at Paris Kosher grocery store Hyper Cacher, saved several people by hiding them in a walk-in freezer when a gunman laid siege to his workplace on Friday.

He later snuck out of the grocery store and helped police plan the operation to liberate the hostages. Parisians hailed him as a hero for saving so many lives and many began a social media campaign to award him citizenship.

The French government is taking steps to make that happen next week:

Lassana Bathily will be given French nationality next week! http://t.co/…

Félicitations, Lassana Bathily!
