Demonstrations pay tribute to beheaded teacher in Paris

France's prime minister Emmanuel Macron joined demonstrators on Sunday (October 18) who rallied together across the country in tribute to a history teacher who was beheaded near Paris after discussing caricatures of Islam's Prophet Muhammad with his class. The demonstrations came hours after U.S. President Donald Trump sent France a message of solidarity in the wake of the attack. Samuel Paty was beheaded on Friday in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine by an 18-year-old Moscow-born Chechen refugee who was shot dead by police.
