The perpetrator was shot by the police. He is said to have shouted “Allah Akbar”.
The incident took place Friday in the suburb of Conflans Sainte Honorine northwest of the French capital. French anti-terrorist units have started an investigation into the beheading. The case is seen as a murder with a terrorist background, according to the French justice.
The attacker threatened the police with a knife after the incident, before he was shot. His motive is not clear. Prime Minister Jean Castex would go to the site of the incident. President Emmanuel Macron will also visit, local media reported. He does so after an emergency meeting at the Ministry of the Interior. Police called on the public via Twitter to stay away from the site.
The teacher is said to have shown the caricatures in class during lessons on freedom of the press and freedom of speech, police sources report to French media. In 2015, 12 people were killed in a terrorist attack on the satirical Charlie Hebdo. This happened shortly after the magazine published cartoons featuring the prophet Mohammed.
Last month there was a stabbing incident at the magazine’s former office. That was shortly after the magazine published caricatures of Mohammed again for the lawsuit against those involved in the terror attack.
It is therefore the second attack in a short time, since the start of the trial. The identity of the murdered killer is still unknown. Initially, Le Figaro spoke of a ‘father’, later it would be a young man. BFM TV speaks later in the evening to an 18-year-old young man born in Moscow.
Politicians express their disgust. Mayor Thibault Humbert, mayor of Eragny, where the place of action falls, speaks of a ‘heinous act’. The minister of education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, says his thoughts are with the teacher’s family.
