Greek schools to hold minute of silence for Samuel Paty


A minute of silence in memory of French teacher Samuel Paty, who was decapitated by a radical Islamist in Paris earlier in the month, will be observed by schools across the country on Monday, according to a circular issued on Friday by the Greek Education Ministry.

The request was made by French Minister of Education Jean-Michel Blanquer during the informal meeting with his counterparts of member-states of the Council of Europe, hosted online by Greece, on Thursday and Friday.
