Yesterday, Stories went flying around the blogs that a young boy made a clock like bomb and was arrested by the police.

There was a strong and angry reaction to this on social media with the hashtag #IStandwithAhmed. 14 year old Ahmed Mohamed was arrested after he'd made a clock at home and brought it into MacArthur High School in Irving to show his engineering teacher who congratulated him.

Another teacher who heard it's beeping sound during class, saw it and believed it looked like a bomb, alerted school authorities who called the police.

The homemade clock consisted of a circuit board with wires leading to a digital display. Later in the day the boy was pulled out of class and interviewed by the school's headteachers and four police officers.

A head teacher also threatened to expel him if he did not write a statement. He was later led out in handcuffs and put into juvenile detention. He was however released to meet his parents after he was fingerprinted.

However, Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg has also sent an invitation to the teen, Ahmed Mohamed, as well as the President of the United States of America; see their tweets below

We believe that there is now hope for Ahmed... but what it is, we do not know!!!
