French prosecutors say the suspect who beheaded a teacher near Paris was a teenager of Chechen descent.
Police officers shot the suspect as they tried to arrest him on Friday. He later died of his wounds
The school is believed to have received multiple threats after the teacher showed a controversial image of the Prophet Muhammad in a lesson about freedom of expression.
Nine people are in custody in connection with the attack.
