Ahmed Mohamed: Homemade clock boy to change schools

Texas police have decided not to charge a 14-year-old Muslim boy arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school.

Officials at MacArthur High School in Irving alerted police because they thought the device was a "hoax bomb".

Ahmed Mohamed's arrest has been sharply criticised, and the boy has received an outpouring of support - including an invitation to the White House.

Ahmed told reporters it was "very sad" that his teacher thought his clock was a threat, but he was pleased the charges against him were dropped.
