Police: Mom kills kindergarten teacher in class

— PARIS (AP) — Police say the mother of a pupil at a French pre-school has stabbed a teacher to death in front of her class on the last day of the school year.

French President Francois Hollande expressed outrage at "this abominable drama" and sent the education minister to the school in Albi in southern France.

A police official in Albi said the mother attacked the teacher Friday morning at the Edouard Herriot pre-school. The official, who was not authorized to be publicly named speaking about ongoing investigations, would not comment on possible reasons for the attack.

The teacher was leading a class of 5 and 6-year-olds, according to the Albi mayor's office. Prime Minister Manuel Valls says the teacher was 34 years old.
