A French teacher who had recently shown caricatures of Muhammad to his students was beheaded on Friday near Paris, and his assailant was killed by police, three weeks after a chopper attack by a young Pakistani near the newspaper’s former offices satirical Charlie Hebdo.
According to a police source, the victim is a history teacher from Conflans Sainte-Honorine, in the Paris region, who recently showed his students caricatures of Muhammad during a course. The teacher was killed on the public highway not far from his college in Bois d’Aulne, in Conflans, the same source added.
The national anti-terrorism prosecution announced to AFP that it immediately seized the investigation, opened for “assassination in connection with a terrorist enterprise” and “criminal terrorist association”.
The attacker shouted “Allah Akbar” before being killed by the police, we learned from a source close to the investigation.
Investigators are interested in a message posted on Twitter by an account now closed and which shows in particular a photo of the victim’s head. They are looking to see if it was posted by the abuser or someone else.

The facts took place around 5:00 p.m., according to a police source. Police officers from the Conflans Saint-Honorine anti-crime brigade, about 50 km northwest of Paris, were called in for a suspicious individual prowling around a school, according to police.
On the spot, the police discovered the victim, and 200 meters away, in the town of Eragny, they tried to stop a man who threatened them with a bladed weapon and fired at him, seriously injuring him. The alleged assailant then succumbed to his injuries.
A security perimeter was installed and the demining service called, due to a suspicion of an explosive vest. Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin, on an official trip to Morocco, immediately returned to Paris and opened a crisis unit. President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron visited the site in the early evening.
This attack comes three weeks to the day after the chopper attack perpetrated by a 25-year-old Pakistani in front of the former Charlie Hebdo premises, which left two seriously injured.
The perpetrator of this Islamist attack told investigators that he acted in reaction to the republication by Charlie Hebdo in early September of the cartoons of Muhammad, which had made the satirical weekly a target of the jihadists.
Charlie Hebdo published these cartoons again on September 1 at the opening of the trial of the Paris attacks in January 2015, which runs until November 10. A total of 12 people including journalists and cartoonists from the weekly were killed on January 7, 2015 in the attack on the newspaper.
In reaction to the republication of these drawings, thousands of demonstrators had protested in several cities of Pakistan against Charlie Hebdo and France.
