France temporarily shuts Paris mosque in crackdown after teacher's beheading

France ordered the closure of a mosque in a Paris suburb for six months as part of the crackdown on Muslims after a teacher was beheaded for showing Prophet Muhammad’s cartoon in a class.

The Grand Mosque of Pantin had shared a video on its Facebook page before the attack that vented hatred against history teacher Samuel Paty.

The six-month order was “for the sole purpose of preventing acts of terrorism”, the notice issued by the head of the Seine-Saint-Denis department read.
