The man then posted a cartoon of the victim’s death Patty Samuel, 47, who had expressed the controversy of the Prophet Muhammad to his student’s social media image.
The assailant then shot the police with an air gun and was shot dead.
On Saturday, the police investigated possible links with Islamic extremism, and the number of arrests increased to 10. The attack occurred at approximately 17:00 (15:00 GMT) on Friday, near Bois d’Aulne College, 30 kilometers northwest of the town of Bouns-Sainte-Honorine in the northwest.
President Emmanuel Macron said that the attack carried all the signs of an “Islamic terrorist attack” and the teacher was murdered because he was “teached to freedom of speech.”

What is the latest attack?
The national prosecutor of counter-terrorism, Jean-François Ricard (Jean-François Ricard) provided detailed information about the attack and investigation.
He named the suspect Abdoulakh A.-an 18-year-old man born in Moscow, Chechnya. He came to France as a refugee when he was young, and the anti-terrorist police did not recognize him.
The man had appeared in court, but was only charged with a misdemeanor.
Ricard said he went to the university on Friday afternoon and asked students to point out the teacher. The attacker followed Mr. Patty. Patty walked home after school, wounded multiple heads with a knife, and then beheaded the victim.
Witnesses are said to have heard the attacker yell “Allahu Akbar” or “God is the greatest”.
The man then posted a picture of the victim and insults against Macron and French “infidels” and “dogs” on a Twitter account.
Ricard said that when the police approached him, he shot the police from an air gun. They exchanged fire. The suspect tried to get up and was shot again, a total of 9 times. A 30 cm long blade was found nearby.
What about the investigation? Ricard stated that Patty has been the target of threats because he showed the prophet Muhammad’s cartoons in a free speech class related to the Charlie Hebdo case. After the comics were released, the French satirical magazine was fatally attacked in 2015. The attack is currently being tried.
