Ahmed Mohamed The Clockmaker Is Moving To Qatar To Study


Teenage student, who was arrested in Texas after taking a homemade clock to school, accepts scholarship offer in Doha.

An American boy arrested for bringing a homemade clock to his Texas school, that was mistaken for a bomb, is moving to Qatar after accepting a scholarship offer to study there.

Fourteen-year-old Ahmed Mohamed’s family announced the move in a statement on Tuesday, a few hours after he was at the White House for an astronomy night hosted by President Barack Obama.

The bespectacled ninth-grader became a global sensation after his September arrest,  which many believe was influenced by bias against his Muslim religion.
