A 34 year old primary school teacher in the French town of Albi has been stabbed to death in front of her class by a pupil's mother.

Fabienne Terral-Calmes was attacked at the Edouard Herriot school on Friday morning.

According to the Education Minister Benoit Hamon, she appeared to have a "serious psychiatric disorder".

The attacker, 47 years old, was bringing her own daughter, aged five or six, to school as usual on Friday when she brought out a long knife, French broadcaster France Info reports.

She is said to have shouted "I am not a thief" before attacking.

Paramedics tried to save the teacher, but she died at the scene from a single stab wound to her side, around two hours after the assault.

Her attacker fled but was arrested a shortly as she wandered along a nearby street muttering incoherently, local prosecutor Claude Derens said.
The suspect was assessed by psychiatrists after her arrest and was found to be suffering from “severe mental problems in the form of delirious notions of persecution”, he told a press conference.

Local media reported that the suspect, who was not named officially, was already known to police over allegations of child neglect.

Le Point magazine reports that the suspect later told police her act was justified because "the teacher was bad" to her daughter.

Louis Vuitton Employee Sues Company 'Cos Manager Said ‘Black People Are Slaves’

Oliver Koffi, who works as a sales associate at a Louis Vuitton London branch, says his former supervisor told him, “Black people are slaves who eat dirt off the floor.”

Koffi alleges the words came as he was packing a pair of shoes for a customer in the stock room last December. His manager also reportedly referred to President Barack Obama as a “puppet” and said America would be better with Miss. Piggy as president since “Muslim people…don’t eat pork.”

In his lawsuit, Koffi says the manager’s tone was “cold and serious” while he made the comments. Three other staff members were also present at the time, it claims.

“His reference to slavery in this day and age with regards to Black people is quite frankly revolting,” Koffi stated in the suit.

“All of his comments were derogatory and a clear illustration of his prejudices toward other races and religions.”

Koffi says he confronted his boss following the statement. “I told him that I was offended by his comment. He did not deny making the comment. He apologized and claimed it was a ‘joke.’ It was not a joke at all.”

In addition, Koffi says his manager asked him questions about his nationality and usually referred to customers by race.

The manager also remarked that Louis Vuitton products were bad because they were “made in China,” the suit says.

A spokesman for the company says that “Louis Vuitton has a zero-tolerance policy to harassment of any kind.”

The organization also investigated the incident and “the manager in question no longer works with the company.”
