PARIS (AFP) - France will pay tribute Wednesday (Oct 21) to a history teacher beheaded for showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in a free-speech lesson, an attack that has shocked the country and prompted a government crackdown on radical Islam. Seven people, including two students, will appear before an anti-terror judge for a decision on criminal charges over the killing of 47-year-old history teacher Samuel Paty last Friday (Oct 16). Police have carried out dozens of raids since the killing, while the government has ordered the six-month closure of a mosque outside Paris and plans to dissolve a group it said supported Palestinian militant group Hamas. "Our fellow citizens expect actions," French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday. Mr Paty was attacked shortly after leaving the junior high school where he taught in the suburb of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine outside Paris. He had been the subject of an online hate campaign after he showed students cartoons of the Prophet in a civics class - the same images that sparked a bloody assault on the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo five years ago.

Westpac said the decision to sell its stake in Zip reflects its approach to simplifying its business and ensuring the efficient use of capital. “Larry Diamond, Peter Gray and the management team of Zip have done a tremendous job growing the company, including expanding globally. We look forward to seeing them continue to grow a globalcustomer franchise," Westpac chief information officer Gary Thursby said. He indicated that Westpac was still looking to partner with Zip. It was expected to be the first company to sign on to the bank's digital banking platform rather than its rival Afterpay. “We are continuing to explore opportunities with Zip, including working to integrate their buy now, pay later functionality into our mobile banking apps across Westpac and our regional bank brands. This would expand our offering to customers and broaden the customers Zip can reach," Mr Thursby said. “We are also working with Zip on other opportunities for consumer, business and corporate customers that we believe could be mutually beneficial, while continuing to develop our banking relationship with Zip.” Zip's share price has soared along with the rest of the buy now, pay later sector, hitting a high of $9.65 in August.
LA PAZ (AFP) - Hundreds of Bolivians protested on Tuesday (Oct 20) against the impending election win of Mr Luis Arce, as the slow official count appeared set to confirm the leftist as their next president. Authoritative exit polls already suggested Mr Arce, a 57-year-old economist from the Movement for Socialism (MAS) and heir to former president Evo Morales, had beaten centrist former leader Carlos Mesa in Sunday's polls - by a wide enough margin to avoid a second-round runoff. And at about 3am local time on Wednesday, with 86 per cent of ballots scrutinised, the official count showed Mr Arce had 54 per cent, followed by Mr Carlos Mesa on 29.5 per cent. Conservative Luis Fernando Camacho was in third place with 14.4 per cent. The usual rapid count had been abandoned after allegations of irregularities last year that led to Mr Morales' November resignation after 14 years in power. "It's a fraud, as Evo Morales has always done," Yeni, a participant in the protest held in Santa Cruz, Bolivia's richest city and a Camacho stronghold, told AFP. Mr Arce's victory "is like a slap in the face", said
