Fire destroys Islamic centre in London

Police are treating blaze at building, which had the name of a far right group graffitied on it, as "suspicious".

    Police are treating a fire which broke out and destroyed an Islamic centre in London as "suspicious", and are investigating the possibility of arson.

    The letters EDL - which stands for English Defense League - were sprayed on the building mostly used by members of the Somali community for children's classes.

    The EDL is a far right group which has led large protests in Britain in the aftermath of the killing of a soldier.

    That murder in May raised fears of Islamaphobia as the main suspect claims to be a Muslim.
