Another four teenagers have been arrested in France for involvement in the murder of French teacher Samuel Paty. A judicial source reported this to the news agency on Thursday AFP.
Three of these minors, aged thirteen and fourteen, are said to have designated the teacher to the attacker.
The fourth minor is charged with slander. In this case, it concerns the daughter of Brahim Chnina, who launched a hate campaign on social media against the murdered teacher.
Earlier this month, three other teens were charged with complicity in Paty’s beheading. The teacher had shown cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in a lesson on freedom of speech and was murdered on October 16 in the Parisian suburb of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine. Chechen Muslim extremist Abdullakh Anzorov was shot dead by police after his act of terrorism.
The murder caused a flood of shocked reactions. President Emmanuel Macron has spoken out strongly against Islamic extremism after the murder. He also defended the publishing of Mohammed cartoons. This sparked anger in Muslim countries.
