France's Macron holds security meeting amid heightened alert after deadly school stabbing
French President Emmanuel Macron has held a special security meeting amid heightened alert against feared terror threats
ARRAS, France (AP) — French President Emmanuel Macron held a special security meeting on Monday amid heightened alert against feared terror threats, as a high school where a teacher was fatally stabbed in an attack last week has been evacuated over a bomb threat.
Several hundreds of students and teachers went back into the high school in the northern town of Arras after what appeared to be a false alert.
All French schools held a moment of silence on Monday afternoon in homage to the teacher who was killed in Friday’s attack by a former student suspected of Islamic radicalization.
The homage also paid tribute to another teacher, Samuel Paty, killed exactly three years ago near his Paris area school. He was beheaded by a radicalized Chechen later killed by police.
