The terrorist who beheaded a teacher in Paris filmed the horrifying attack and shared it with ISIS supporters, it is claimed.
Aboulakh Anzorov, 18, was shot dead by police following the sickening attack on Samuel Paty on Friday.
Russian-born Anzorov shared pictures of the teacher’s body on Chechen ISIS Telegram channels, it is claimed.
In videos shared after the brutal attack, the teenager also branded French president Emmanuel Macron as “leader of the infidels”.
Prosecutor Jean-François Ricard said that Anzorov, who was granted a 10-year residency in March this year, was carrying a knife and an airsoft gun.
He had reportedly asked pupils to point out Mr Patey, who had shown a Charlie Hebdo cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed to his class.
It has emerged that Mr Paty received threats before the gruesome killing that has shocked France.
The Islamist terrorist was shot dead by police after cutting his victim’s head off with a kitchen knife in the Paris suburb of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine on Friday evening.
Parents confirmed the teacher showed the cartoon of a nude prophet to pupils earlier this month.
The depiction of Mohammad displaying his buttocks had been published by Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine which was attacked by al-Qaeda linked gunman in 2015.
Twelve people were murdered around the publication’s offices in Paris, after the terrorists accused them of blasphemy before being gunned down themselves.
Investigators were trying to establish whether the attacker had acted alone or had accomplices.
Nine people, including members of the attacker’s family, have been arrested.
Four relatives of the attacker, including a minor, were detained in the immediate hours after the attack in the middle-class suburb, it was reported.
Five more were detained overnight, among them two parents of pupils at the College du Bois d’Aulne where the teacher was employed.
One of those arrested was the father of a pupil at the Bois-d’Aulne college who had posted a YouTube video calling for people to complain about Mr Paty’s behaviour in class, and calling the teacher “a thug”.
Anti-terrorist prosecutors are investigating the attack on him, and linking it with radical Islamism.
The killer had posted anonymous messages online describing French president Emmanuel Macron as “leader of the infidel”.
In turn, Mr Macron said: “It was no coincidence that the terrorist killed a teacher because he wanted to kill the Republic and its values.”
