from the prosecution, confirming information from BFM TV.

Threats accompanied by a photo of Samuel Paty, and repeated on October 16, one year to the day after the assassination of the teacher, while the country paid tribute to his memory.

The two teachers have lodged a complaint, said the rectorate, explaining that they are "in permanent contact with them as well as with the police services".

An investigation has been opened and has been assigned to the South Division.

"At this stage, there is nothing to link these facts to a course given by one of the teachers," said Dominique Laurens, the public prosecutor.

A safety device for teachers has been put in place by the police services.
