The people who were arrested would come from the family circle of the perpetrator. One of the suspects arrested is said to be a minor.

The victim was stabbed and beheaded on Friday in the suburb of Conflans Sainte Honorine, in northwestern Paris.

The man is said to have been a high school teacher, according to French police. Sources tell the news agency Reuters that he had shown his students cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

After the incident, a suspect threatened the police with a knife. They shot him there. A little later he passed away. According to the French BFM it was an 18-year-old man who was born in Russia. He is said to have shouted “Allahu Akbar”, but a police spokesman could not confirm that yet.

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke of an “Islamic terrorist attack” on Friday evening when visiting the city where the beheading took place. “A civilian was murdered because he was a teacher and taught freedom of speech,” Macron said. “The whole country is behind all teachers in the country”. According to the president, France will respond “quickly and with authority”.

The prosecutor for terror cases is investigating.
