Police say the mother of a pupil at a French pre-school has stabbed a teacher to death in front of her class on the last day of the school year.
A police official in Albi said the mother attacked the teacher Friday morning at the Edouard Herriot pre-school. The official, who was not authorized to be publicly named speaking about ongoing investigations, would not comment on possible reasons for the attack.
The teacher was leading a class of 5 and 6-year-olds, according to the Albi mayor's office. Prime Minister Manuel Valls says the teacher was 34 years old.
