'Super nice'

Pupils and parents insisted Samuel Paty was not trying to provoke by showing the Prophet Mohammed cartoons that led to his attack.

"He didn't do this to create arguments or to disrespect," says Nordine Chaouadi, whose 13-year-old son enjoyed Paty's classes. "My son said to me, 'He was super nice, this man'."

The president said a day of national hommage would be organized at a date to be agreed with the teacher's family.

"One of our fellow citizens was murdered today because he was teaching, because he advocated to his students freedom of expression, the freedom to believe and not to believe," President Emmanuel Macron said after visiting the scene.
