Radical Islamist Who Beheaded History Teacher In France Was In Contact With Jihadist In Syria Samuel Paty

Recently, a teacher named Samuel Paty was beheaded in France for showing cartoons of Prophet Mohammed in his class. Chechen Abdullakh Anzorov, an 18-year-old radical Islamist, committed this crime. He was subsequently shot dead by the cops.

Agence France-Presse (AFP) has now reported that Anzorov had been in contact with a Russian-speaking jihadist in Syria. Le Parisien newspaper has revealed that the jihadist had been traced through an Internet Protocol (IP) address that was sourced back to a north-western city in Syria named Idlib.

The report adds that the exact identity of the Anzorov’s contact from the middle-eastern country is not yet certain.

French President Emmanuel Macron has called the gruesome killing an Islamist Terror Attack. Macron who has publicly paid tribute to Paty is also overseeing a nationwide crackdown on radical Islamists.

“Samuel Paty … became the face of the Republic, of our will to shatter terrorists, to (do away with) Islamists, to live like a community of free citizens in our country. We will continue. Samuel Paty was the victim of a conspiracy of stupidity, hate, lies … hate of the other … hate of what we profoundly are,” Indian Express quoted Macron saying.
