[International News Center/General Report]A middle school history teacher in the suburbs of Paris, France, was beheaded by a suspected Islamic extremist on the street in the evening of the 16th! The suspect was immediately killed by the police, and the French National Anti-Terrorism Prosecutor’s Office also launched an investigation into the case with a terrorist incident.

This appalling murder took place in the small town of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Conflans-Sainte-Honorine), a small town more than 30 kilometers away from Paris. The crime was committed at about 5 o’clock in the evening. not far away. The police said that the teacher showed a cartoon of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in the classroom 10 days ago and asked the students to discuss it publicly. This triggered dissatisfaction from the parents of the students and complained to the school. Such cartoons are regarded by Muslims as blaspheming the prophet, but the suspect does not have children studying in the school.

French President Macron went to inspect the school where the teacher teaches on the evening of the 16th, and classified the brutal murder as an “Islamic terrorist attack”, calling on the nation to unite against extremism. The local council also strongly condemned the atrocity.

The police said that the suspect possessed a knife and an airsoft gun used in the survival game.

French media reported that the suspect was a Chechen born in Moscow, only 18 years old. According to reports, witnesses claimed to have heard the suspect chanting “Allah is the greatest”.

After Russia cracked down on the Islamic separatist forces in Chechnya in the 1990s and early 2000s, a large number of Chechen refugees fled to France to seek asylum, and Chechen communities spread all over France. In recent months, violent incidents involving Chechens have occurred one after another across France, which is believed to be related to criminal activities.

The incident happened on the day that two widows of the two suspects of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack appeared in court to testify. On January 7, 2015, two militants armed with submachine guns broke into the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo and fired at the crowd, killing 12 people. Two days later, the two suspects fled into a printing factory, took hostages to confront the police, and were shot dead.
