6 Teenagers Convicted In France Over Teacher's Beheading In 2020


Paris:

 A French court on Friday convicted six teenagers in connection with the 2020 beheading of history teacher Samuel Paty, whose murder shocked the country.

The teacher had shown his pupils caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad in a class on freedom of expression, angering some Muslim parents. Most Muslims avoid depictions of prophets, considering them to be blasphemous.

Among the six on trial was a teenage girl who had allegedly told her parents that Paty had asked Muslim pupils to leave the room before showing the caricatures.


The court found her guilty of having made false accusation charges and slanderous comments, as it was established that she was not in the class at the time.
