France is holding a national tribute to Samuel Paty, the history teacher murdered outside his school because of a class he gave on freedom of speech in which he showed cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. We spoke to Gabriel Lattanzio, an English teacher at a secondary school on the outskirts of Paris.
