RAID: Inside France’s Anti-Terrorist Unit

Dealing with the most delicate and dangerous issues of security and safety, the RAID unit intervenes not only in terrorist attacks, but also in dismantling drug networks, transferring dangerous prisoners, and handling hostage situations. It was this unit charged with neutralising and arresting those behind the deadly attacks in Paris in November 2015 and on Charlie Hebdo.

We follow these elite men at work and through their difficult training period and see what makes them so special.
