A teacher is dead after a student stabbed them through the heart in a small French town this morning, APA reports citing The Sun.
The teacher succumbed to his injuries in the town of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques after being brutally attacked around 10:00am.
The 16-year-old pupil reportedly pulled a knife out of his bag before stabbing his Spanish teacher.
He was shortly arrested after, and initial reports reveal he suffers from "psychiatric disorders" and is said to "be possessed".
On Twitter, the Pyrénées-Atlantiques prefecture confirms that an "incident" is in progress at the high school, specifying that "the police are on site", and that the Bayonne prosecutor has been seized.
