A school teacher was stabbed in the abdomen by a pupil’s Moroccan mother in her classroom in Albi, not far from Toulouse, where a Muslim jihadist killed 4 students and a teacher in a Jewish school last year.
UK Daily Mail (h/t burqasrugly) Fabienne Calmes, a 34-year-old mother of two little girls, died after being stabbed in the abdomen this morning, the last day of term at the Edouard Herriot school in the town of Albi in south west France. The 47-year-old attacker reportedly burst into the classroom and screamed ‘I’m not a thief’ before stabbing the teacher in the abdomen.
She then attempted to escape but was caught around 20 minutes later close to the school grounds. The Moroccan-born woman, who holds Spanish nationality, has a police record for child neglect and not reporting a runaway child, French radio reported.
Claude Derens, the Albi prosecutor, told AFP, France’s national news agency: ‘This morning a mother came in with a knife and stabbed a senior teacher aged 34 in front of the children, for a reason that an investigation will determine.
‘When I arrived on the scene, they were still trying to revive her. She was in cardiac arrest,’ said the prosecutor, who said Ms Calmesdied of her wounds soon afterwards.
UK Telegraph According to local media reports, the woman said during the assault that her act was justified because “the teacher wasn’t nice to my daughter”, and had also shouted “I am not a thief”.
The horrific attack came just over two years after a French Islamist gunman killed three Jewish children and a rabbi in front of a school in the nearby city of Toulouse.
