Sudan president meets US teen detained for homemade clock

Sudanese state-run radio says Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old American teenage boy arrested after a homemade clock he brought to school was mistaken for a bomb, has met Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir. The boy’s father, Mohamed Hassan al-Sufi, is a Sudanese immigrant in the U.S. and a former presidential candidate who ran opposing al-Bashir. Radio Omdurman reports Thursday that al-Bashir received the Texas teenager and his family a day earlier at a presidential compound in Sudan’s capital Khartoum.
