A large crowd of mourners gathered in Place de la Republique in #Paris on Sunday to pay tributes to #SamuelPaty, the teacher who was decapitated in what authorities call a terror attack near the capital on Friday night.
Some attendees were seen carrying flowers and signs reading “I am a teacher.”
On Friday, 47-year-old history teacher Samuel Paty was beheaded outside his school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, northwest of Paris. The teacher had recently showed caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad to his students during a discussion on freedom of speech.
The suspect was identified as being Abdulak Abuezidovich A., a 18-year-old Russian of ‘Chechen origin’ who lived in Evreux, Normandy, with a refugee status.
