VERSAILLES, France, April 26, 2006 (AFP) - An 18 year-old secondary school pupil whose assault on a woman teacher was filmed by a fellow student and circulated via mobile telephone was held for questioning by police Wednesday, justice officials said.

The 18 year-old, who has not been named, attacked the teacher with a chair on Monday in a classroom at a lycée in Porcheville, west of Paris. Images of the 15-second assault which were captured by the second pupil have been printed in the national press.

Police had yet to identify the second pupil, who sent the film to friends in the poor Val Fourré neighbourhood of the town of Mantes-la-Jolie.
