France attack: History teacher killed named as Samuel Paty.

A teacher called Samuel Paty was killed in a suburb of Paris in an Islamist terror attack after what Emmanuel Macron called a 'cowardly attack'.

France's anti-terrorism prosecutors have said nine people have been arrested and the suspect was shot dead on Friday.

Mr Paty reportedly showed images of the Prophet Muhammad in class during a discussion about freedom of expression.

A complaint was made and the teacher was later spoken to by police.
