French mom sent toddler to school in 'I am a bomb' T-shirt

QMI AGENCY

A French mother is on trial for "glorifying crime" after she sent her son — named Jihad — to school wearing a T-shirt reading "I am a bomb."

The shirt, which also reads "Born on 11 September," was given to the three-year-old by his uncle, Zeyad Bagour, the BBC reports.

Bouchra Bagour, 35, in court in Avignon Wednesday, denied the shirt was meant to provoke.

The two are co-defendants in the trial, and may face fines of between $1,300 and $4,000.

Zeyad told court he'd only meant to highlight the boy's birth date, according to the report.

A teacher notified police after the toddler wore the shirt to nursery school on Sept. 25.

The trial has been adjourned until April 10.
