Greek schools will on Monday observe a minute of silence in memory of French teacher Samuel Paty, who was decapitated by a radical Islamist in Paris on October 16, in line with a decision by the Education Ministry circulated to schools last week.

The move followed a request made by French Minister of Education Jean-Michel Blanquer during an informal meeting with his counterparts of member-states of the Council of Europe hosted online by Greece.
