Demonstrations were held across France in a show of solidarity after the beheading of a teacher on his way home from school. Thousands gathered in central Paris to pay their respects to Samuel Paty, who was killed after showing cartoons of the Muslim prophet Mohammed in a class on freedom of expression. People held aloft posters declaring “no totalitarianism of thought.” Police have detained 11 people in connection with the killing. The suspect was shot dead by police soon after the attack.
