A teacher has been fired for showing his class a video that shows the apparent killing and dismemberment of a murder victim.

Luka Magnotta, a gay former porn star, is accused of killing Jun Lin, a Chinese student, and posting a video online that shows him stabbing Mr Jun and having sex with the dismembered corpse. The case drew worldwide attention when Mr Jun's body parts were mailed to the headquarters of two Canadian political parties, and provoked an international manhunt when Magnotta fled to Europe. He was arrested in Berlin last week.

The teacher at the Cavelier-De LaSalle High School in Montreal was suspended with pay on 4 June, the same day that he was reported for showing the video to pupils. The 29-year-old teacher's name was not released.
