DALLAS (AP) - The Muslim teenager arrested after bringing his clock to a suburban Dallas school says he hopes to return to Texas one day.

Ahmed Mohamed told Dallas television station KTVT Tuesday that he feels safe in Qatar, the Middle Eastern country where he now lives.

Mohamed received worldwide attention after Irving police arrested him for bringing what he said was a homemade clock to school. While he was invited to the White House, Mohamed’s family said they received threats and no longer felt comfortable in Irving.

Attorneys for his family are demanding $15 million from the school district and the city.

Mohamed told KTVT he wants to come back to Irving eventually and see “people I grew up with,” not just people who know him due to the clock controversy.
