French police have arrested nine people over the beheading of an educator near his school during a Paris suburb, a judicial source said on Saturday, in what President Emmanuel Macron labelled an Islamist terror attack.
Police said the victim was 47-year-old history teacher Samuel Paty, who had shown his pupils some cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed as a part of a category discussion on freedom of expression — a lesson that had prompted complaints from parents.
Two of the suspect’s brothers and his grandparents were initially detained by police for questioning.
Another source stated on Saturday that five more people had been detained, including friends of the suspect.
Documents found on the beheading suspect showed he was an 18-year-old born in Moscow but from Russia’s southern region of Chechnya.
The attacker shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”) as police confronted him, a cry often heard in jihadist attacks, a police source said.
There had been no previous indication that he was a possible radical, a source on the brink of the investigation said.
French anti-terror prosecutors said they were treating the assault as “a murder linked to a terrorist organisation”.
Police said they were investigating a tweet posted from an account — since pack up — that showed an image of the teacher’s head.
It was unclear whether the message, which contained a threat against Macron described as “the leader of the infidels”, had been posted by the attacker, they said.
Visibly moved as he visited the scene, Macron said “the entire nation” stood united to defend teachers.
His office said Saturday a “national tribute” would be held in Paty’s honour.
