An Iranian man who lived for 18 years in Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport has died. Merhan Nasseri, who inspired the Steven Spielberg film, The Terminal, began to live at the airport due to being left in legal limbo, lacking residency papers. 

However, after these were granted he remained there, apparently out of choice. Nasseri died of a heart attack.
