France announced its decision to ban an Islamic group after the recent beheading of a teacher in Paris.
The Islamic group, linked to late Sheikh Yassin, is a part of the country’s efforts to crack down upon militants that may be involved in the recent killing of a teacher. This shocking incident took place last week, as the murderer beheaded the teacher in public.
