Suspect in teacher's beheading in France was Chechen teen

Suspect in teacher's beheading in France was Chechen teen”

Ricard said the suspect had been seen at the school asking students about the teacher, and the headmaster had received several threatening phone calls.

The victim had recently shown caricatures of Muhammad in his class on freedom of expression, causing anger within the community.

According to local media, the victim is a 47-year-old history teacher who had reportedly shown in his class cartoons of Prophet Mohammad, which are considered by Muslims as blasphemous, and was decapitated by a knifeman.

"French Police Fatally Shoot Man Who Beheaded Teacher on the Street", is the headline that America's esteemed "paper of record" made a decision to go with for its article conveying this incident.

Fourteen suspects are on trial on accusations of giving logistical support to the assailants, who killed 12 people in that attack.

The offices were the scene of an attack in January 2015 that saw 12 people killed, including numerous magazine's staff.

One who had been to school with him said he had become noticeably religious in recent years.

Before showing the images, the teacher asked Muslim children to raise their hands and leave the room because he planned to show something shocking, the man said.

"He said his prayers, he wasn't out, he spoke politely", he added.

The suspect's half-sister joined the Islamic State group in Syria in 2014, Ricard said.

Late last month, a man, who emigrated to France from Pakistan, used a meat cleaver to attack and wound two people outside the former offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

"He had no contacts with the (Russian) embassy", Parinov said.

France's anti-terrorism prosecutor's office said that authorities investigating the horrific killing of the man in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine have also arrested nine suspects, including the grandparents, parents and 17-year-old brother of the attacker.

The schoolgirl's father and a known Islamist militant are among 10 people arrested. Prosecutors announced they were treating the incident as "a murder linked to a terrorist organization".

The attacker, of Chechen origin, had been living in the town of Évreux, northwest of Paris, and was not previously known to the intelligence services, Ricard told a news conference.

The investigation will also look at a tweet from an account opened by the attacker, and since shut down, that showed a picture of Paty's head and described Macron as "the leader of the infidels".

Macron's office said a national tribute would be held for Paty on Wednesday.

In an outpouring of grief, the hashtag #JeSuisSamuel (I am Samuel) trended on social media, like the #JeSuisCharlie call for solidarity after the attack on Charlie Hebdo in 2015.

On Saturday, hundreds of pupils, teachers and parents flooded to Paty's school to weep and lay white roses.

Martial, a 16-year-old pupil, said Paty had loved his job: "He really wanted to teach us things".

According to the source, the two detained parents had signalled their disagreement with the teacher's decision to show the cartoons.

The president visited the scene of the crime on Friday, and vowed that "the entire nation" stood ready to defend teachers.
