Anti-terror authorities announced today that France will prosecute seven people over last week's beheading, including two teenagers accused of pointing him out to his killer.Anti-terror prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard said the children - aged 14 and 15 - were in a group who shared 300-350 euros (£270-£315) offered by the killer to help find the teacher.

The two stayed with the killer, Anzorov, for more than two hours waiting for the 47-year-old father of one.Paty was targeted for having shown cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in a civics class discussion on free speech early this month.The prosecutor said the two accused youngsters had stayed with Anzorov even after he told them he wanted to 'humiliate and strike' Paty over the Muhammad caricatures, seen as offensive by many Muslims.

Anzorov decapitated Paty with a knife and tweeted an image of the teacher's severed head on Twitter before he was shot dead by police. Many of Paty's pupils saw the disturbing image online.The two teenagers are among seven people who will face prosecution for 'conspiracy to commit a terrorist murder', said Ricard.

French police officers were seen standing guard and holding firearms at the end of the street where Anzorov was shot dead after refusing to surrenderThe others include the father of one of Paty's pupils, who started the social media campaign against the teacher even though his daughter was not in class when the cartoons were shown, said the prosecutor.

The father had exchanged messages with Anzorov via WhatsApp in the days leading up to the murder.A fourth suspect is a known Islamist radical who helped the father in his campaign.Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin has accused the two men of having issued a 'fatwa' against Paty.

Three of Anzorov's friends complete the suspect list, one of whom allegedly drove him to the scene of the crime while another accompanied him to purchase a weapon.Police have carried out dozens of raids since the crime, while the government has ordered the six-month closure of a mosque outside Paris and dissolved the Sheikh Yassin Collective, a group they said supported Hamas.

The Palestinian militant group said on Wednesday it had 'no links' with the French organisation founded by Abdelhakim Sefrioui - the Islamist radical in custody over Paty's murder.The French government has earmarked for dissolution more than 50 other organisations it accuses of having links to radical Islam.

'Our fellow citizens expect actions,' Macron said on Tuesday.Paty's beheading was the second knife attack in the name of avenging the Prophet Muhammad since the Charlie Hebdo trial started last month.The killing has prompted an outpouring of emotion and solidarity in France, with tens of thousands taking part in rallies countrywide over the weekend.

Thousands more took part in a silent march in the teacher's honour in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine on Tuesday.France's sports ministry said on Wednesday that participants in all professional sporting events this weekend - football, basketball, handball, rugby and ice hockey and volleyball - would observe a pre-match minute of silence for Paty, and wear black armbands for matches scheduled for next week.

But you will encourage people who hate your way of life into Europe, This was no doubt a brutal murder but on the other hand these cartoons were not just cartoons .They were offensive. Would the French accept offensive cartoons of Jesus in the name of free speech ? The weapon of the boycott is the solution and will subject the dirty pork Macron

Hypocrisy must end. The west needs to understand the love Muslims have for their Prophet PBUH. It is blasphemy. Muslim sentiments need to be respected. This brave teacher confronted the twin threats of Islam. This first is the brutal slaughter by Islamists in the street, but the second and far more insidious is the Western Establishment persecution of those who refuse to kneel to Islamist savagery.
