It happened this afternoon in Conflans-Saint-Honorine, Yvelines about 35 kilometers from Paris.
A man was beheaded in Conflans-Saint-Honorine (Yvelines), about 35 kilometers from Paris. His alleged assailant was seriously injured by police shooting in the neighboring town of Eragny (Val-d’Oise). The events occurred around 5 in the afternoon near a school.
The police chased the attacker who was neutralized with bullets on Roger Salengro Avenue and installed a large security perimeter and warned those who were nearby to take shelter. They also raised the warning on their social networks.
The terrorist trail is mentioned at this stage of the investigation, but it is not confirmed yet, police sources told French media.
According to the French media News 17, the victim is a teacher at the Bois d’Aulne de Conflans-Sainte-Honorine school who had shown cartoons of Muhammad during a class, which would have motivated the murderer’s act.
French Prime Minister Jean Castex will go to the scene of the incident shortly, while Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin will shorten his official visit to Morocco to return to France.
