French mum faces trial for sending son named 'Jihad' to school with 'I am a bomb' t-shirt
The mother and uncle of a three-year-old boy named 'Jihad' appeared in a French court for sending him to school in a t-shirt bearing the words 'I am a bomb'.
The long-sleeved T-shirt also had the words 'Jihad, born on September 11' emblazoned on the back when he went to school in the southern town of Sorgues near Avignon on September 25.
According to news.com.au, his mother and uncle are charged with condoning a crime over the alleged reference to the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington in 2001.
The uncle bought the t-shirt and the mother dressed her son in it when she sent him to school that day.
The judge at the court in Avignon agreed to a request by their lawyer for the trial to be postponed until next year for technical reasons and set March 6 as the date for the next hearing, the report said.
According to the report, the accused made no comment to reporters as they left the courthouse.
