The arrest of a Chinese student at New Jersey's Stevens Institute of Technology in April on terror threat charges caused concern – and anger – here in China. Now, more than eight weeks after Zhai Tiantian was arrested for allegedly threatening to burn down a school building, his mother has spoken out in defense of her son.
