The French counterterrorism prosecutor, Jean-Francois Ricard, said today, Saturday, that the 18-year-old who beheaded a history teacher in front of his school spoke to his students in the street and asked them to identify his victim.
The police shot dead the Moscow-born bomber after he was shot dead by history teacher Samuel Patty (47 years) in broad daylight in the Conflans suburb of Saint Honorine “Friday”.
Rickard said that a picture of the teacher’s body was found, which the attacker posted on “Twitter”, accompanied by a message admitting to his death, on a phone next to his body, after police killed him. He added that the account belonged to the attacker.
Twitter quickly removed the post and said it closed the account for violating company policy.
He added during a press conference that the attacker, who was of Chechen origin, was living in the town of Evre, northwest of Paris, and was not known by the intelligence services.
The prosecutor confirmed that the police were holding nine people in connection with the attack.
The murder shocked the country and brought to mind the attack on the headquarters of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo five years ago.
Prime Minister Jean Castex said the attack bore the hallmarks of terrorism.
“I express to you my complete dissatisfaction. Secularism, the pillar of the French Republic, was targeted by this vile act,” he added.
Police sources said that four relatives of the attacker, including a minor, were arrested in the hours following the attack.
Police also arrested five others overnight, including two parents of students at the College de Bois de Lone school where the teacher was working.
A week ago, a man, who said that his daughter was a student of Patti, recorded a video clip he posted on social media, in which he described the teacher as a criminal and appealed to others “to cooperate and say,” Stop, do not touch our children. ”
It was not clear if this father was one of those detained by the police, nor was it clear if the attacker had seen the video clip.
Parents of students placed bouquets of flowers at the school gate. Some of them said that their children were in a state of shock.
In an expression of intense sadness, the hashtag “Ji Sui Samuel” (I am Samuel) issued social media sites as an expression of solidarity, as happened at the time of the attack on the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo magazine in 2015.
Leaders of the Muslim community condemned the incident, which many public figures consider an attack on the essence of the French state and its values of secularism and freedom of belief and expression.
