Dozens of people have gathered at a New Hampshire park to stage a rally after an eight-year-old biracial boy was nearly hanged by a group of teenagers, according to his family. The boy's grandmother said the attackers taunted him with racial slurs on 28 August in the mostly white town of Claremont, before pushing him off a picnic table with a rope around his neck. He was treated in hospital for injuries to his neck and has been released.
Gov. Chris Sununu has asked the state Attorney General's office to help police in Claremont with the investigation of an alleged attack against a biracial boy in the city, according to a statement released by the governor's office Tuesday.
