Seven people, including two pupils, will appear before an anti-terror judge for a decision on criminal charges over the killing of 47-year-old history teacher Samuel Paty on Friday.

Police have carried out dozens of raids since the killing, while the government has ordered the six-month closure of a mosque outside Paris and plans to dissolve a group it said supported Palestinian militant group Hamas.     

"Our fellow citizens expect actions," Macron said on Tuesday. 

Paty was attacked shortly after leaving the junior high school where he taught in the suburb of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine outside Paris.

He had been the subject of an online hate campaign after he showed pupils cartoons of the prophet in a civics class -- the same images that sparked a bloody assault on the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo five years ago.

A gruesome murder in France rekindles the country’s debate on free speech and Islam

  A gruesome murder in France rekindles the country’s debate on free speech and Islam Muslims in France have been pressured to assimilate into the country’s secular culture. But at what cost?History and geography teacher Samuel Paty, 47, brought scrutiny this month when he showed his 12- to 14-year-old students two caricatures of Muhammad published by the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo — the same images that in 2015 inspired jihadists to kill 11 staff members at the magazine and six others in Paris. Parents and teachers at the school, located just 20 miles outside the capital, said Paty gave his Muslim pupils the opportunity to leave the classroom or look away so as not to anger them.

French police on Monday raided Islamic associations and probed foreigners suspected of holding extremist religious beliefs -- three days after teacher Samuel Paty was beheaded outside his school in a Paris suburb.

The parent had exchanged messages with Anzorov via WhatsApp in the days leading up to the murder.

The material he uploaded was widely shared, including by a mosque in the northern Paris suburb of Pantin, which the government will close Wednesday for six months for spreading material likely to provoke "hatred and violence".

Macron has also announced that a pro-Hamas group called the Sheikh Yassin Collective would be dissolved for being "directly implicated" in the murder.

The group's founder, Islamist radical Abdelhakim Sefrioui, is among those in custody over the murder. Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin has accused him and the school parent of having issued a "fatwa" against Paty.

Hamas said in a statement Wednesday it had "no links" to the collective and Sefrioui had no "organisational relationship" with the Palestinian movement.

The French government has earmarked another 50-odd other organisations with links to "radical Islam" for dissolution.

On Tuesday, in a phone call with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Macron asked Moscow for stronger cooperation in the fight against terror.

Russia has rejected any association with the killer.

Putin offered Macron his condolences over the "barbaric murder", according to the Kremlin, and the two leaders "reaffirmed their mutual interest in intensifying joint efforts to combat terrorism and the spread of extremist ideology."

- 'Enemies of the Republic' -

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin has vowed there would be "not a minute's respite for enemies of the Republic" in the wake of Paty's murder.

Paty's beheading was the second knife attack in the name of avenging the Prophet Mohammed since a trial started last month over the Charlie Hebdo killings in 2015 when 12 people, including cartoonists, were gunned down.

Also in custody are three of Anzorov's friends -- one of who allegedly drove him and another who allegedly accompanied him to buy a weapon.

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.
