French officials are investigating 51 Islamic associations, three days after a suspected extremist beheaded a French history teacher last week. The teacher was apparently targeted after he showed his class caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in a discussion on free speech. Sylvie Kauffmann, an editor at Le Monde, and Yasser Louati, a French human rights activist, speak with The World’s host Marco Werman.
