France’s anti-terrorism prosecutor is investigating the death of a history teacher who was found decapitated in a suburb of Paris on Friday.
The suspected killer was caught in a nearby town and was shot dead after refusing to drop a knife, authorities said. The man’s motive is under investigation, but police told French news agency AFP that the victim had recently shown cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad during a discussion about freedom of speech in his class, a move that prompted threats against him.
The accused killer is believed to be a young man of Chechen origin, Le Parisien reported. He also posted a video of the victim’s severed head and was carrying a knife and a gun when police found him, according to the paper.
Friday’s gruesome slaying happened in a street of Éragny, several miles northwest of the French capital.
It’s the second terrorism-related incident to strike the country in the past three weeks. A young man from Pakistan was arrested on Sept. 25 after stabbing two people near the former offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which was the target of a terrorist attack in 2015.
