Jail for mother over son's 'I am a bomb' 9/11 top
by Ben McPartland
A mother who sent her three-year-old son Jihad to school wearing a sweater with the words "I am a bomb" on the front, along with his name and 'Born on September 11th' on the back, was handed a suspended jail sentence on Friday for "glorifying a crime".
A court of appeal in the city of Nimes, southern France, convicted Jihad's mother Bouchra Bagour and his uncle Zeyad for "glorifying a crime" in relation to the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11th 2001.
"We have to rule that they (the mother and uncle) knew of the provocative nature of the T-shirt," said the counsel for the prosecution.
