French teacher invented Aubervilliers school attack

Source: BBC

A teacher at a French preschool who said he had been stabbed by a man shouting "Islamic State" has admitted he made the story up, prosecutors say.

The teacher said he had been attacked while alone in a classroom in Aubervilliers, a suburb of Paris.

The local prosecutor's office said he was now being questioned as to why he lied about the incident.

France remains on high alert following the terror attacks in Paris on 13 November that left 130 people dead.

5. You're probably right. Anything that promotes fear of Muslims plays into the hands of the

National Front.

7. There have always been people who will fake crimes for fun/profit/sympathy

People have faked everything from rapes and racial attacks to robberies and child abuse. It's no suprise to see that someone has finally faked a terrorist attack.

Some people do it for notoriety. Some for political gain. Some for profit. And some because of mental illness. Hopefully she will either get the help she needs, or be prosecuted accordingly.
