Teacher 'assassinated' for discussing images of Prophet Mohammed in Paris

A history teacher has been “assassinated” in an Islamist terror attack in a Paris suburb because he was said to have discussed images of the Prophet Muhammad with his pupils.

French President Emmanuel Macron called it a “cowardly attack”, saying the man was a “victim of an Islamist terrorist attack” and was killed because he “taught the freedom of expression, of believing and not believing”.

According to Le Parisien newspaper, the attacker was an 18-year-old man of Chechen origin, who was carrying a knife.

He is believed to have been shot after he refused to put down his gun.

A gun was found at his side. Other reports say it was an airsoft gun that fired plastic pellets.
