From the Guardian:

A history teacher decapitated outside his secondary school in a Paris suburb on Friday after he showed a caricature of the prophet Muhammad to his pupils has been named.

Samuel Paty, 47, who taught history and geography at the school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine , north-west of the French capital, was attacked on Friday evening by an 18-year-old man who was shot dead by police shortly afterwards.

The anti-terror prosecutor has opened an investigation into “assassination linked to a terrorist organisation and association with terrorist criminals”. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/oct/17/teacher-decapitated-in-paris-named-as-samuel-paty-47



The showing of the caricature was 10 days ago, and before his vicious murder, Paty had received threats. Tragic and disgusting.

Making fun of Muhammad seems like a stupid thing to do.

Cutting off someone's head because of a cartoon is asinine.

"Islamist attack" according to CNN and the French government. Sickening that anyone thinks this is appropriate response to a cartoon.
