PARIS (Reuters) – France will react with the greatest firmness after the beheading of a schoolteacher in the street of a Paris suburb on Friday after showing his students caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed, Prime Minister Jean Castex said on Saturday.

“Through one of its defenders, it is the Republic that has been struck to the heart by Islamist terrorism,” Castex wrote on Twitter.

“In solidarity with its teachers, the State will react with the greatest firmness so that the Republic and its citizens live, free! We will never give up. Never. “
