President Macron described Samuel Paty as a “image of freedom” throughout a tribute attended by Mr Paty’s household and about 400 company in Paris.

Mr Macron told viewers that France “will not give up our cartoons” and that Samuel Paty is an emblem of “freedom and motive”.

The historical past and geography trainer was attacked and beheaded near his college close to Paris, after displaying cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to college students throughout a category on 6 October. His killer, 18-year-old Abdullakh Anzorov, was shot lifeless by police.

Islamic custom explicitly forbids images of Muhammad and Allah, and depictions may cause critical offence to Muslims.
