SKY NEWS – A teacher who claimed he was stabbed by a masked raider citing Islamic State has admitted making it all up, according to French prosecutors.

The 45-year-old sparked a manhunt on Monday after telling police an assailant burst into his classroom before lessons began at the kindergarten in Aubervilliers, northern Paris.

The teacher had claimed the raider attacked him with a box cutter and scissors found in the classroom and said: “This is Daesh (IS), it’s a warning.”

The teacher was taken to hospital after being stabbed in the side and throat. It is now unclear how he got his injuries, which were not life-threatening.
