0

An eight-year-old boy from the southern French city of Nice
was questioned by police on Wednesday after he allegedly made comments
expressing “solidarity” with the gunmen who had attacked the offices of Charlie
Hebdo magazine, according to media reports. The attack on the French satirical
publication by militants, allegedly affiliated to al Qaeda, on Jan. 7, had led
to the deaths of 12 people and triggered a state of high alert in countries
across Europe.

Authorities at the boy’s school notified the police on Jan.
8 after he refused to participate in a minute’s silence to honor those killed
in the attack. The boy, whose name has not been disclosed, also reportedly said
he supported the terrorists who attacked Charlie Hebdo as he opposed the
caricatures of Prophet Muhammad that were printed by the magazine. “I am
on the side of the terrorists, because I am against the caricatures of the
prophet,” he reportedly said.
The boy and his father are now being questioned by the
police.
