Paris Mayor Ange Hidalgo, Prime Minister Jean Castex (Jean Castex) and other political figures at the protest.
A special needs teacher working in the Paris area told CNN that she participated in the demonstration and was shocked because she was killed.
She said: “We should all live together, learn to live together, and everyone must respect everyone’s beliefs.”
The prosecutor said that the killer was indispensable
The 18-year-old Chechen refugee Abdoullakh Abouyezidovitch praised the beheading of 47-year-old Samuel Paty on Friday, who now teaches history and geography at Bois d̵
Authorities said that Patty had taught a course on freedom of expression, during which time he used the prophet’s cartoons taken from Charlie Hebdo, which caused controversy.
Ricard said that Abouyezidovitch contacted students outside the school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine on the outskirts of Paris and asked them to point out Paty before attacking the teacher.
The prosecutor said that Abuyezdovich, unknown to the intelligence services, lived in Evre, more than an hour’s drive from the attack site. It is not clear whether Abuyezdovich ever attended Bois Olena University.
Ricard said that Patty organized a course on Charlie Hebdo comics. Nortine Chaouadi, the parent of one of the students at the school, told AFP that Paty took steps to avoid offending Muslims among his classmates.
“This is just to protect them. This is purely out of goodwill, because he has to show a caricature of the Islamic prophet and just say to a Muslim child:’Go out, I don’t want it to hurt your feelings.’ This is my son Tell me,” he said.
Several people were detained
After the Danish newspaper published the controversial cartoon in 2005, Charlie Hebdo republished the cartoon the following year.
On October 7, the father of a student of Paty asked to fire Paty on Facebook. He also filed a complaint and posted a YouTube video criticizing the teacher. Ricard said Patty responded to the defamation complaint.
The police have detained 11 people for questioning. These included complaining about Patty’s father and the man’s son, who were suspected of “joining the Islamic State organization in Syria in 2014 and were therefore subjected to a search warrant judge for an anti-terrorism investigation.” The prosecutor said.
French judicial officials said that Abjezdovic’s parents, grandfather and brother were also questioned.
French Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer stated that Paty was murdered because he “taught a course related to freedom of expression, one of the pillars of democracy.”
Brownquill wrote in a tweet: “Samuel Patty embodies our Republic’s most precious asset: its schools. He was cowardly murdered by enemies of freedom. We will be united, determined and determined.”
Macron said that Patty “was killed because he was teaching students freedom of speech, freedom of belief and unbelief.”
