SANAA, Jan. 13 (YPA) – French police arrested seven suspects on Tuesday in a sprawling probe into the brutal murder of Samuel Paty, a history teacher who was beheaded near Paris in October, Agence France-Presse 24 reported.
The seven, aged between 17 and 21, were members of discussion groups that the teacher’s killer was part of, according to a judicial source.
They were arrested in the cities of Toulouse, Lyon, Rouen and Besancon, as well as in the Seine-et-Marne and Maine-et-Loire departments.
Abdoullakh Anzorov, a teenage refugee of Chechen origin, slaughtered 47-year-old Paty for showing cartoons to students that depicted Prophet Mohammad. Anzorov was shot dead by the police.
