A MUM who sent her three-year-old son named “Jihad” to nursery school wearing a top bearing the words “I am a bomb” is to go on trial in France.
Beneath the boy’s name on the back of the jumper were the words “Born on the 11 September” – the date of the 9/11 terror attacks on New York’s twin towers.

The muslim mum was reported to police by the boy’s outraged teacher and has now been charged with supporting a terrorist act.
Thierry Lagneau, the mayor of the southern French town of Sorgues, said: “We fully support charges being brought against this woman for provoking hatred and terrorism in one of our schools.
The mother said she was “speechless” over the uproar the T-shirt caused.
