Who was the teacher beheaded in Paris?

The teacher, who was not identified, had received threats after opening a discussion “for a debate” about the caricatures about 10 days ago, a police official told The Associated Press.

The parent of a student had filed a complaint against the teacher, another police official said, adding that the suspected killer did not have a child at the school.

The gruesome killing of the teacher occurred in the town of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine.

“We didn’t see this coming,” Conflans resident Remi Tell said on CNews TV station. 

What happened to the suspect?

The suspect was killed by police in adjoining Eragny.

The towns are located in the Val d’Oise region northwest of Paris.

The suspect, armed with a knife and an airsoft gun – which fires plastic pellets – was shot dead about 600 yards from where the male teacher was killed after he failed to respond to orders to put down his arms.

The suspected killer was also not identified.

What did President Emmanuel Macron say?

France President Emmanuel Macron was on his way to the area, but has yet to comment.

Macron’s government is working on a bill to address Islamist radicals who authorities claim are creating a parallel society outside the values of the French Republic.
