Earlier this month in France, a teacher who had reportedly shown caricatures of the Islamic prophet Muhammad during a civics class was beheaded by an 18-year-old Chechen refugee, who was subsequently fatally shot by police.

The teacher, Samuel Paty, was beheaded on the street by Abdoullakh Anzorov.
