A bus driver has died in France five days after he was attacked by passengers who refused to wear face masks, his family have said.
Philippe Monguillot, 59, was left brain dead after he was dragged off his bus and assaulted in Bayonne, southwest France, on 5 July.
He died on Friday after doctors agreed it was time to "let him go", his 18-year-old daughter Marie said.
Two men in their 20s have been charged with attempted murder, while another two have been charged with failing to help a person in danger in connection with his death. A fifth man faces a charge of hiding a suspect.
Mr Monguillot was pushed off the bus, violently beaten and kicked in the head after he asked three men to wear masks and tried to check another man's ticket late last Sunday, Bayonne's prosecutor said.
