“ The Republic recognises him as an exemplary citizen and will not forget him .

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin, who was due to meet some of Bayonne’ s bus drivers on Saturday and discuss the security situation, labelled it an “ abhorrent act ” .

Monguillot’ s family had organised a silent march in his honour on Wednesday , departing from the bus stop where the assault took place.

His colleagues refused to work after the attack but will resume work on Monday under stepped – up security arrangements , the local operator Keolis said .

The two charged with attempted murder are aged 22 and 23 and were previously known to police .
