A nine-month-old boy charged with attempted murder in Pakistan has been granted bail. The toddler, Muhammad Mosa Khan, was arrested in February along with family members for allegedly throwing stones at police during a raid in Lahore. The residents reportedly failed to pay for electricity. Police arrested the toddler, took his fingerprints, and was made to sit on his grandfather’s lap while in court.
