French Teacher Beheaded For Showing Blasphemous Cartoons of Prophet Muhammad To Students In what could be called as a provocative attack, a teacher in France was beheaded for showcasing blasphemous cartoons of Prophet Muhammed ﷺ. The incident took place outside the school on Friday and it was termed by President Emmanuel Macron as an “Islamist attack”.

The attacker was shot by police as they tried to arrest him and later died of his injuries.

According to police sources, the attacker shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”) as police confronted him.

The attack occurred on the outskirts of Paris at around 5:00 pm near the middle school where the teacher worked in Conflans Saint-Honorine, a northwestern suburb around 30 kilometres (20 miles) from the centre of the French capital.

Four people, including a minor, have been arrested, a judicial source told AFP early Saturday. All were related to the assailant, the source added.

The victim was a history teacher who recently showed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammed ﷺ as part of a class discussion on ‘freedom of expression’, police said.

According to a judicial source, an identity card found on the assailant indicated he was born in Moscow in 2002, although investigators were waiting for formal identification.

Police said they were investigating a tweet posted from an account that showed a picture of the teacher’s head, and which has since been shut down. It was unclear whether the message, which contained a threat against Macron — described as “the leader of the infidels” — had been posted by the attacker, they said.
