A teacher was beheaded last week by the parent of one of his student for showing cartoons of Muhammad:
First it was Samuel Paty, now another terror attack in France. This time, Nice.
A country edging back towards lockdown, and worrying about terrorism

7 people have been charged over the murder of Paty, including two teenagers:
2 teen students, who can’t b named 4 legal reasons, were allegedly pd ~ ($355) by the killer to id Mr Paty outside the school.
The killer told the students he wanted to "hit" & "humiliate" Mr Paty & "make him apologise 4 the cartoon of Prophet [Muhammad]” https://t.co/5RuE3zvULi

We’ll likely see this attack get blamed on French President Emmanuel Macron for calling the Paty attack exactly what it was:
Just two days ago Turkey’s Erdogan criticised Emmanuel Macron for perpetrating an “anti-Islam” agenda when Macron criticised radical adherents to Islam in the wake of the murder of Samuel Paty.
Today three more people are dead in Nice.
I stand with @EmmanuelMacron & France.
