French President Emanuel Macron has been under attack over his stern reaction on the killings by Islamic extremists. Recently, a history teacher Samuel Paty, 47, was beheaded for showing cartoons of Prophet Mohammad during a discussion on free speech and, yesterday, three people were killed, one of them beheaded, in a church in French city of Nice.
