Attacker shouts ‘Allahu Akbar’ before beheading teacher in Paris

A terrorist on the streets of Paris beheaded a teacher, shouting, “Allahu Akbar” before claiming responsibility, threatening police, and being shot to death by police, reports Laura Italiano for the NY Post.

The killer, who had other weapons, was the father of one of the victim’s students. Apparently the victim, a history teacher, discussed freedom of expression with his students and used some of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons of Muhammad as illustration.
