On October 16, a teacher was beheaded by an alleged radical islamist in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, a suburb north-west of the French capital Paris, with the attacker shot dead by police after a brief standoff.
The victim was a teacher who is said to have shown caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad to his students as an example of free speech in France.
A source told Le Parisien: “The victim had recently given a lesson to his students on freedom of expression and had shown the caricatures of Muhammad.”
The incident took place at about 17:00 local time (15:00 GMT) near a school.
According to media reports, a man wielding a large knife attacked the teacher in a street, cutting off his head. Witnesses say they heard the attacker shout “Allah Akbar”.
Then, the attacker ran off, but local police deployed at the scene in the nearby area of Éragny. The attacker was shot dead after a brief standoff with Police. The attacker was allegedly carrying a gun (reportedly an airsoft one) and was thought to be wearing a bomb vest.
Prosecutors said they were treating the incident as “a murder linked to a terrorist organization” and related to a “criminal association with terrorists.”
Local media citing sources in the investigation say that the attacker “is believed to be from a Chechen background.” In other words, he reportedly was a Chechen descent.
MSM reports point out that thousands of Chechen ‘refugees’ entered France in the early 2000s following the Second Chechen War in Russia. What MSM reports do not mention is that most of them were members of illegal armed groups (often indoctrinated by radical Islamist ideology) or persons affiliated with such groups. Multiple similar ‘refugees’ are hiding from the justice not only in France and in many other countries of Europe. The Western propaganda and diplomats like to describe them as ‘freedom fighters’ and ‘supporters of Chechen democracy’. In fact, these are radicals often involved in spreading radical Islamist ideology in Europe, participating in the organized crime and other illegal activities. A notable part of these ‘refugees’ joined ISIS, when the terrorist group’s self-proclaimed Caliphate was on the rise, and then was eliminated in Syria by Russia and its allies.
