French police on Monday raided Islamic associations and probed foreigners suspected of holding extremist religious beliefs — three days after teacher Samuel Paty was beheaded outside his school in a Paris suburb.

Paty, 47, was murdered in broad daylight Friday by Abdoulakh Anzorov, 18, a Chechen refugee granted a 10-year residency in France this past March.

Following the attack, Anzorov confronted responding cops with an air-gun rifle — and shouted “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great” in Arabic — as the officers opened fire, killing him.

Anzorov sought to avenge Paty’s use of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad in the nude during a class on freedom of expression for 13-year-olds. Muslims consider any depiction of the Prophet as blasphemous.
