...They Blow Up So Fast These Days
"French mom sent toddler to school in 'I am a bomb' T-shirt," Sun News reports:
A French mother is on trial for "glorifying crime" after she sent her son — named Jihad — to school wearing a T-shirt reading "I am a bomb."
The shirt, which also reads "Born on 11 September," was given to the three-year-old by his uncle, Zeyad Bagour, the BBC reports.
Bouchra Bagour, 35, in court in Avignon Wednesday, denied the shirt was meant to provoke.
The two are co-defendants in the trial, and may face fines of between $1,300 and $4,000.
Zeyad told court he'd only meant to highlight the boy's birth date, according to the report.
