'Liberty, I teach your name': French papers pay tribute to slain teacher


IN THE PRESS – Monday, October 19, 2020: We look at reactions in the French papers to the brutal beheading of history teacher Samuel Paty. Libération references the famous Occupation-era poem "Liberty" by Paul Éluard with the headline "Liberty, I teach your name". Despite calls for unity, Le Parisien reports that there's already division, with right-wing politicians pushing for a response that goes beyond tributes. Papers are also examining the role played by a radical Islamist who was a known terror threat.
