Samuel Paty Biography                                                                    Samuel Paty Wiki

HEARTBROKEN colleagues paid tribute to a decapitated teacher Samuel Paty in front of a school near Paris who showed caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

Samuel Paty Age

Samuel Paty, 47, a professor of history and geography, had previously received death threats for producing pictures for a lesson on freedom of expression.

Suspect’s name was Aboulakh

The suspect’s name was Aboulakh A, 18, a Russian national of Chechen origin.

He was shot dead by police in the Paris suburb of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine on Friday after cutting off his victim’s head with a kitchen knife.

Nine people – including family members of the perpetrator – were arrested.

The terrorist was considered angry children.

He is said to have called out Allahu Akbar – which means that God is the greatest – when he committed the bloody murder.

The suspect then posted a graphic image of Samuel on social media and a threat in French to those who “insult” the Prophet.

Today broken-hearted coworkers and students held up white roses and signs that read “I am a teacher” – which means “I am a teacher” in honor of Samuel.

Others posted on Twitter with the hashtag “Je Suis Prof” in solidarity with the tragic professor.

Samuel was previously “concerned for his safety” after receiving death threats, a colleague said.

They said, “Samuel angered parents by showing children in his free speech a picture of a naked prophet and there were threats against him.”

The image was the same as the one published by the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in 2015.

In response, an armed man associated with al-Qaeda stormed officers in Paris and slaughtered 12 people.

The armed men were later killed by police when the hashtag “Je Suis Charlie” was spread around the world.

Charlie Hebdo has now tweeted after the attack.

They said, “Charlie Hebdo shares his feelings of horror and revolt following the murder of a teacher on duty by a religious fanatic. We express his deepest support for his family, loved ones and all teachers.

“Intolerance has just crossed a new threshold and doesn’t seem to stop at nothing to impose its terror on our country. Only the determination of political power and the solidarity of all will overcome this fascist ideology.

“This dirty act mourns the loss of our democracy, but it must make us more combative than ever to defend our freedom.”

BLOOD BATH

The bloodbath broke out when Samuel was discovered beheaded yesterday near the school – about 40 km from Paris.

The killer then fled to the nearby town of Eragny-sur-Oise, about three kilometers away, where he refused to leave.

The terrorist police confirmed they were investigating and were threatened with “weapons” when attacking the suspect.

About ten shots were fired in the quiet suburbs when he was shot dead by police officers.

Counter-terrorism prosecutors are investigating the attack and linking it to radical Islamism.

French President Emmanuel Macron condemned the horror when he visited the school where the teacher worked last night.

He said, “A citizen was murdered today because he was a teacher and because he taught freedom of expression.

“The whole country supports its teachers. Terrorists will not divide France, obscurantism will not win.”

Yesterday’s attack is the fifth this year in France alone.

Last month, seven people were arrested in connection with a knife attack outside Charlie Hebdo’s former office in Paris.

France has been plagued by a series of deadly terrorist attacks since 2015.

The deadliest was in 2015 when 130 people were killed in Paris when suicide bombers attacked the Stade de France, cafes, restaurants and the Bataclan concert hall.

In July 2016, 86 people were killed and over 400 injured when a 19-ton truck was deliberately driven into the crowd in Nice.
