Suspended jail for French mother who sent son to school in 9/11 'bomb' T-shirt
NIMES, France (AFP) - A French mother who sent her three-year-old son to school in a T-shirt reading "I am a bomb" and "Jihad, born on September 11" was given a suspended prison term on Friday for defending crime.
Bouchra Bagour said she had simply wanted to mark the birthday of her son - who is named Jihad and was born on Sept 11 - and had not intended any connection with the 9/11 attacks in the United States in 2001.
She was acquitted in April by another court on charges of defending terrorism, but prosecutors had appealed the decision.
On Friday, an appeal court in the southern city of Nimes reversed the ruling, fining Bagour 2,000 euros (S$3,400) and giving her a suspended one-month jail term.
