AFP : A Brussels district has suspended a teacher who showed a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) while discussing the murder of a French teacher who had used the same image, its spokesman said Friday. The Belgian teacher, who works in the Brussels district of Molenbeek, showed one of the cartoons previously published by French magazine Charlie Hebdo while explaining Samuel Paty's death. "Our decision is uniquely based on the fact that these are obscene images. If it had not been of the Prophet we would have done the same thing," said a spokesman for Molenbeek's mayor. The mayor's spokesman stressed the suspension was not a punishment, but to preserve good order while a disciplinary procedure is carried out, after which the teacher could face administrative measures.
