Ahmed’s story: 8 yr old questioned by French police over terrorism

    This is the story of Ahmed, the 8 yr old boy hauled in front of the French police after he said: “I am not Charlie”.

    Ahmed says his teacher hit him after he said he was “in the camp of the terrorists,” even though he didn’t realise what he was saying.

    Ahmed’s story illustrates the  hysteria that is gripping France in the aftermath of the deadly Charlie Hebdo attacks, a hysteria that is leading to an anti-Muslim backlash.
