French mom faces fine for dressing son named Jihad in 'I am a bomb' shirt

A French mother was forced to appear in court after sending her son, named Jihad, to school wearing a T-shirt with the words "I am a bomb" written on the front, Sky News reports.

Boucha Bagour apologized for dressing the 3-year-old in the controversial clothes, saying she thought the shirt would "make people laugh."

The shirt reportedly had the words "I am a bomb" on the front, and "Jihad, born Sept. 11," on the back.

"For me, this is the name of my son and his date of birth," Bagour said.

Bagour, 35, and her brother Zeyad Bagour, 29, face fines of $1,301 and $3,903 respectively if they are convicted, Sky News reports.
