US bus adverts anger Muslim groups

Rights groups condemn advertisements that compare Islam with Nazism.

    Muslim civil rights groups have condemned a series of adverts placed on city buses in the US capital, Washington DC, that compare Islam with Nazism.

    The banners were paid for by activist, Pamela Gellar, who has previously waged campaigns against the building of mosques in the US.
