Four schoolchildren were being held by French police on Monday on suspicion of helping a man who beheaded a history teacher to identify his victim in return for money, a judiciary source said.

They were among 15 people being held over the incident, one of whom has previously been convicted for terrorism-related crimes and admitted to having had contact with the man who killed Samuel Paty for showing a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed to his class, the source said.
