French police on Friday said they shot dead a man suspected of killing a middle school teacher by slitting his throat in the street in a suburb of Paris.

One man was found beheaded in the north-western Paris suburb of Éragny, Val-d'Oise on Friday afternoon, after a police patrol came upon a man carrying a knife. The police shot him dead, according to a police spokesperson.

A police source said that witnesses had heard the attacker shout "Allah Akbar", or "God is Great", but police have not verified this account, according to reports. They said they were treating the incident as "a murder linked to a terrorist organisation".

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin, on a visit to Morocco, is returning to Paris immediately after talking with Prime Minister Jean Castex and President Emmanuel Macron, his office said.

The report also added the attacker was the parent of a student, but this has not yet been confirmed by police.

The attack comes only days after a follower of the Islamic State militant group who attacked a police officer outside Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris with a hammer was sentenced to 28 years in jail.

A young man from Pakistan was arrested after stabbing, outside the newspaper's former offices, two people who suffered non life-threatening injuries.

It was the second terrorism-related incident since the opening of an ongoing trial on the newsroom massacre in January 2015 at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

In Islam, depcitions of the prophet are a contentious issue, with many believing it is forbidden.
