British schoolboy questioned by “anti-terrorism” police for wearing “Free Palestine” badge - Salon.comBritish teen Rahmaan Mohammadi was questioned by “anti-terrorism” police for wearing a “Free Palestine” badge to school, numerous media outlets in the U.K. have reported.

The 17-year-old student at Challney High School for Boys in Luton was referred to police by his teachers last summer. They cited Prevent, the U.K.’s so-called anti-radicalization program.

Mohammadi says he was characterized as an “extremist” and was “interrogated” by police, who warned him not to talk about Palestine in school.
