President Barack Obama has extended a personal White House invitation to a 14-year-old Muslim boy from Texas who was detained by police after bringing in a homemade, beeping clock, which teachers had mistaken for a bomb. The story of the student, Ahmed Mohamed, spurred accusations of Islamophobia and the hashtag #IStandWithAhmed to trend on Twitter, while his older sisters set up an account for him, @istandwithahmed, which has collected more than 26,000 followers within hours.
