France to Expel 231 “Extremism” Suspects

France is preparing the expel migrants on a religious extremism government watch list, a police union source told Europe 1.

It follows the murder of history teacher Samuel Paty in Paris.

The Russian-born Islamist teenager – who had refugee status – asked students to identify him before beheading the teacher.

It’s believed the suspect targeted Mr Paty after he showed students a depiction of the prophet Mohammed.

French Interior Minister Gerard Darmanin ordered the expulsions in a meeting with local prefects at the weekend.

180 of the suspects are already in prison, with a further 51 due to be arrested.

In France the definition of extremism is “people who, engaged in a process of radicalisation, are likely to want to go abroad to join terrorist groups or take part in terrorist activities.”
