Teacher decapitated, suspect shot dead by police

Man beheaded in Paris suburb, attacker shot by police

"This evening I want to say to teachers all over France, we we are with them, the whole nation is with them today and tomorrow".

The thread contained a video of a man who said his Muslim daughter was one of the pupils in the class - and she had been shocked by the teacher's actions.

France's Anti-Terror Prosecutor's Office confirmed to ABC News that it has opened an investigation into whether the killing is linked to terrorism.

The suspected killer was shot dead by police. The attack happened at around 5 pm (1500 GMT) near a school in Conflans Saint-Honorine, a western suburb of the French capital. An Associated Press reporter saw three ambulances arrive at the scene, and heavily armed police surrounding the area and police vans lining leafy nearby streets.

The scene has been cordoned off and a bomb disposal unit dispatched because of the suspected presence of an explosives vest, the police source said.

This footage was taken on Rue du Bois d'Aulne in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, the site where the teacher was reportedly killed.

IPhone 12 to ship 80 million units in 2020

The teacher had received threats after opening a discussion "for a debate" about the caricatures about 10 days ago, the police official said. The suspect's identity was not made public.

As authorities worked to establish a more complete picture, the potential motive of seeking revenge for the Muhammad cartoons led investigators to quickly consider the case a terrorist attack, Le Monde reported. He described the town as peaceful.

The office of Charlie Hebdo itself was the target of a terrorist attack by Islamists in 2015, when two brothers stormed the office with guns leaving 12 dead and another 11 injured.

The paper recently republished caricatures of the prophet.

Local media have identified the attacker as an 18-year-old man of Chechen origin, citing unnamed sources.

The incident came as Macron's government is working on a bill to address Islamist radicals who authorities claim are creating a parallel society outside the values of the French Republic.
