Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of France on Sunday in support of Samuel Paty, the teacher beheaded after showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to his pupils.

A protester carried a sign reading "zero tolerance to all enemies of the Republic", another "I am a professor. I'm thinking of you, Samuel."

Over Twitter, the hashtag #JeSuisSamuel was being used to express support for the late teacher.
