Amos Yee, who made insensitive remarks on Christianity in video, arrested

SINGAPORE - The 17-year-old teenager who made insensitive remarks about Christianity in a YouTube video against Mr Lee Kuan Yew was arrested on Sunday.

In the video posted last week, he celebrated Singapore's founding Prime Minister's death and criticised his political career.

He also challenged Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to sue him.

At least 20 police reports have been lodged against Amos Yee since March 27, when he was believed to have uploaded the eight-minute video.

On Sunday, one reader alerted The Straits Times to yet another police report lodged against the teenager, but this time it was regarding his posting of obscene material on his blog.

The video, which has been slammed by netizens, is no longer available on his YouTube channel. The blogpost has also been taken down.
