    Conflans-Sainte-Honorine

    A pupil’s father who had called for a mobilization on social media against Samuel Paty, the French teacher assassinated on Friday 16 October near his school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Yvelines), exchanged messages with the assailant in the days that preceded the attack.

    AFP learned on Tuesday from a source close to the case that these exchanges are believed to have taken place on the message server WhatsApp, added the source, confirming news from BFMTV.

    The father of the female pupil had given his telephone number on Facebook in a message accompanying a video disseminated on 8 October, in which he called for mobilization against Samuel Paty after a course on the Mohammad cartoons, which, according to him, his daughter attended.

    The latter, who is in 4th grade, was, indeed, a pupil of Samuel Paty, but on the day of October 6 – the day of the class on freedom of expression – she had been absent according to a source close to the case.

      Bit by bit, this story comes out. This was no “lone wolf”, but someone who had been indoctrinated by jihadists, and who was looking for a target as a means. And clearly the pupil’s father in question was a principal in the conspiracy to act against the teacher, if not in plotting the attack and his murder.

      There is no such thing as a “lone wolf”, in this case or in others. The work was actually done by a full-fledged wolf pack.
