French police have arrested nine people in the case of beheading a teacher near the school. Sources said the murder was carried out by an 18-year-old youth, who was then shot dead by police near the scene in Connflans-Sainte-Honorin, northwest of Paris. Please tell that President Emmanuel Macron has called this incident an Islamic terrorist attack.
Police said the victim was 47-year-old history teacher Samuel Patty, who showed his students some cartoons of Prophet Mohammed during a discussion on the subject of freedom of expression. After this, the parents of some students complained to the teacher. The suspect’s two brothers and their grandparents were initially detained by police for questioning.
A judicial source told AFP on Saturday that five more people have been detained at the school, including the parents of a child and friends of the suspect. According to the source, the parents had expressed disagreement over the teacher’s decision to show the cartoon.
The attack comes at a time when the trial of the massacre in January 2015 is going on in the office of Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine. The magazine had published caricatures of Prophet Mohammed, causing a wave of anger in the Islamic world. The magazine republished the cartoons in September and last month a young Pakistani man injured two people outside the magazine’s former office.
