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.
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.
