French police have raided the homes of dozens of suspected Islamic radicals following the beheading of a teacher who showed controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to his pupils. Some of those being questioned are believed to have posted messages of support for the killer of Samuel Paty. The government also said it was investigating 51 French Muslim associations. Police shot dead Mr Paty’s suspected killer on Friday in a Paris suburb. On Monday, Interior Minister Gerard Darmanin said the operations sent a message that there was “no respite for enemies of the republic”, and that they were expected to continue all week.
