Gateway Pundit (h/t nita) The Muslim terrorist was shot dead by police on Friday after he beheaded a man in the north-western Paris suburb of Éragny, Val-d’Oise, and refused to drop his weapon. According to French media, the terrorist was armed with a knife, gun and was wearing an explosive vest.
The SUN The victim was said to be a history teacher who previously angered Muslim parents by displaying cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed to pupils, in a less on freedom of expression. It led to a Muslim parent confronting the teacher with a kitchen knife before cutting his head off, the source reportedly said.
The suspected terrorist, who is said to have shouted “Allahu Akbar” at the time, was reportedly an 18-year-old Chechen man born in Moscow. He was believed to be furious that the children had been shown the cartoons.

The first bloodbath took place near a school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, a suburb some 25 miles from the centre of the French capital on Friday.
French anti-terror prosecutors confirmed they were investigating an attack in which a man was decapitated on the outskirts of Paris. An investigating source said: “The body of a decapitated man was found at around 5.30 in the afternoon.
“When police arrived, the person thought to be responsible was still present and threatened them with his weapons.”
The unidentified killer is said to have fled to the nearby town of Eragny-sur-Oise, around two miles away, where he refused to surrender. “He was waving a gun by this time and further threatened officers,” the source said. “This is when he was shot dead by police. Around ten shots were heard.”
Anti-terrorist prosecutors immediately began investigating the incident, the source said, adding that the attacker was being viewed as a “suspected terrorist”. Witnesses watched the man decapitating his unnamed victim – who was also male – in broad daylight close to a school.
If confirmed as being terror related, today’s incident would be the 33rd terror attack in France since 2017.
It follows a terrorism enquiry being launched in Paris last month after two news agency staff were stabbed outside the former offices of Charlie Hebdo – the magazine where staff members were murdered in 2015 after publishing cartoons mocking the Prophet.
Paris-born brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi murdered 12 people in the Charlie Hebdo offices using Kalashnikovs, before escaping in a stolen car, and later being killed by police.
A third terrorist, Amedy Coulibaly, gunned down four shoppers in a kosher supermarket and a policewoman during three days of carnage before he too was killed.
