French President Emmanuel Macron has paid tribute to “quiet hero” Samuel Paty, the teacher who was beheaded last Friday.
Mr Paty was targeted close to his school near Paris for showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in class.
His killer, 18-year-old Abdullakh Anzorov, was shot dead by police.
Speaking at a televised memorial service on Wednesday, Mr Macron told viewers that France “will not give up our cartoons”.
The service was attended by the teacher’s family and some 400 guests.
The coffin was brought into the ceremony on the shoulders of a guard of honour and to the sound of the song “One” by the rock group U2.
On top of the casket was Mr Paty’s Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest honour. It was posthumously awarded to Mr Paty.
