French pupils return to school for the first time since teacher’s beheading

FRENCH pupils return to school for the first time since teacher’s beheading.

Over twelve million pupils returned to school in France on Monday, November 2, for the first time since Samuel Paty was beheaded by an Islamist militant after he used cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammad in a class on freedom of expression.

Schools are said to have held a minute’s silence in honour of Paty at 11am, who was murdered in a middle-class Paris suburb on the eve of a two-week holiday.

The Le Bois d’Aulne college where Paty taught is keeping its doors closed to students until Tuesday, November 3.

France is currently at its highest level of security following horrific events including a knife attack on a church in Nice and a gun attack against a preacher in Lyon.

President Macron has described Paty as a “quiet hero”.
